BENEFITING: GRAND COUNTY BLUES SOCIETY
EVENT DATE: Jul 09, 2016
I started road cycling three years ago and have really come to love it. I signed up for the Triple Bypass last year but developed a sore right where you don't want it for that long a time in the saddle. Things generally work out and they are working out this year as I am intending to ride this challenging ride for the first time this year, in the year of my 60th birthday (June 18, 1956). I have admired Blue Star Connection (http://bluestarconnection.org/about/) from its inception. It is an incredible organization and I admire it and everyone involved with it. Music for young cancer patients? I'm in. . . .and I hope you will join me and pledge to give this amazing non-profit some of your charitable dollars this year for every mile I ride of the 2016 Triple Bypass https://triplebypass.org/home.php. I'm asking for pledges per mile for the 120 miles of the front side of this ride. I intend to ride back the next day, another 120 miles over the same three mountain passes from the west side making it the infamous 'Double Triple Bypass'. If you would like to add something in your pledge in case I am able to complete Day Two, that would certainly be extra incentive and some bonus for Blue Star Connection although I don't think I have quite the game to make the return trip a mandatory (for me) part of this fund raiser because, frankly, I don't know if I can do that or not. I think the 120 miles and 10,000 feet of elevation gain on Day One will be very challenging, beyond anything I've ever done before, and I just don't know if I'll have what it takes to do the return ride right away. Anyway, I hope and am grateful in advance for any and all support you would like to give. Thank you!!!!! Now, to some training!!!!
