I just wanted to thank everyone that helped me raise funds for the Make-A-Wish foundation ride I did last week. Most of my funds came from Apexers!
I rode all 300 miles and suffered for just about every one of them. I got to meet the girl my team rode for and am looking forward to doing it again next year.
At the expense of my image here, I put some pictures up for you guys...
We rode from Cheybogan to Ypsilanti. It's amazing looking at a map that we were able to do so. We also rode through the nice little towns of Saginaw and Flint. For those of you not familiar with either town, let's just say I was happy to get out of those cities having only been pegged once with a cup holder and threatened/yelled at a dozen times or so.
We started off up near the Mackinac Bridge. This picture was taken the evening before the ride overlooking Lake Huron.
Here's a couple pics of my and my baby, errr...bike. You can tell they were taken at the beginning because I don't have the death stare going on.
We stayed at a small school the first night. There were approx 560 riders and 75 volunteers. Most of us stayed in the school, finding a place wherever we could.
Every 12-20 miles there was a SAG stop. Here's what most of them looked like. Just a tent with a bunch of fruit and snacks to keep you going. Most of them had a massage team as well to loosen up cramping muscles.
