BENEFITING: BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF CENTRAL VIRGINIA
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2017
Mileage Tracker: 399
Hey Friends – I am excited (yet terrified) to tell you that I am riding 100 miles in the Boys and Girls Club Cycling Challenge on September 17! And, I will be riding it on a tandem bike with my husband, Patrick.
We have spent the past few months training for this exciting event and in that process, we have enjoyed some quality time together on our bike. Some training highlights have included great road snacks, an occasional beer, seeing a newborn baby calf, assisting an unconscious cyclist that we happened upon in Cape Cod (well, Pat was more the assist on that!), views of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains which we are lucky to call our own, and lots of laughter on the bike together.
The Boys and Girls Club offers a lineup of nationally recognized programs that address some of the most pressing youth issues. They engage kids and help them meet their fullest potential while planning for a successful future. Some of the kids from the club have also been training, paired with experienced local cyclists, to ride with us this Sunday. How awesome is that?
I hope you will consider donating to my fundraiser for this awesome organization. Patrick and I are really proud to ride in support of the kids at Boys And Girls Club!
