A Bike and a Cause

Written on August 27, 2014

If you know me even a little you’d probably know I’m not a cyclist, runner, or non-motorized distance-traveler of any kind. I’ve long wanted to get into shape. Real good shape. And I’m on a roll with quite a bit of momentum lately. So, I decided to take my buddy Nam’s invitation and joined his team for the Love 146 Ride/Ride/Walk 4 Love.

Nam loaned me his Specialized M2 Stumpjumper fitted with road tires. I haven’t ridden a bike since the day I got my driver’s license 15 years ago. This should be interesting.

So I’m going for it — for a good cause, and to help me on my quest to get into shape. If you want to support my ride and help fight child trafficking and exploitation, you can do so below. I’m both nervous and excited at the challenge.
