It's that time of year when I join a few hundred friends to cycle in the M2D 100 mile road ride to benefit Just For Kids Foundation. This year I'll be doing my last minute training in France with fellow rider Laura Marchal (that's me in Alsace yesterday riding through the vineyards)! I arrive home from France the day before M2D ... Fingers crossed that my jet lag doesn't set in until I cross the finish line!!! As always, ever dollar raised by the riders of this amazingly beautiful century ride is matched by the Bill Carsten Family Fund and all of that is then awarded to the people and the organizations that serve kids in our region.
