Thank you for supporting me …
Thank you for supporting me on my “Ride for the Feast” this year. With your help, I raised $1,775 for Moveable Feast. My team, the Meadow Mill Maniacs, raised a combined $14,445 - enough to feed 10 Moveable Feast clients for an entire year.

We rode with Baltimore in our hearts this year. A few days before the Ride (which took place last weekend), we learned that Day 2 of the event was cancelled - our permit to ride through the city had been revoked in fear of civil unrest. Normally, Day 1 is a 100-mile ride from Ocean City to Easton, MD, and on Day 2 we ride another 40 miles into the city, highlighted by a police escort from the American Visionary Arts Museum to the Moveable Feast headquarters on Milton Street. The ride through Baltimore is always special, and this year, of all years, we missed being able to ride through the city we love.

We made the most of Day 1, a beautiful sunny day. I rode with my friends Ed and Monica. It was windy - as always seems to be the case on the Eastern Shore - but we stuck together and took turns “pulling” each other, riding wheel-to-wheel in single file, with the rider in front taking the brunt of the wind resistance for the others. We took a silly selfie at every rest stop. We exchanged hellos and encouragement with the other riders and support crew, many familiar folks who have been doing the Ride for years. We had a great time and thought about how lucky we are to be part of the Moveable Feast community.

Thank you for helping Moveable Feast continue to support Baltimore’s most vulnerable citizens. Here are a few words Tom Bonderenko, Executive Director for Moveable Feast, posted on Facebook recently:

“We understand the issues at hand are neither simple nor singular. We are committed to playing whatever role is appropriate for us in restoring peace to our community and in ensuring that every citizen is treated justly, with equal opportunities for housing and employment, and the right to be regarded, in every situation, with dignity and respect.”

With all my best wishes,

Alex (and the Maniacs)
