I am coming down the final stretch before the big ride! On Saturday, I will be venturing down to the south of Buffalo (which my dad insists is as nice as the French riviera) for a 70 mile bike ride to raise funds for MS research.
Training for the ride went alright, though this is the my first major bike event so only time will tell if I am actually prepared. I weight-trained fairly consistently, though I haven't done as much bike work as I was originally planning on doing. I did a few long rides: a 20+, 30+, 40+ and 50+ mile rides and quite a few 10+ rides on my way to training at the gym. Hopefully enough!?
I'm planning on using the eCrumbs app by RoadID to allow real time GPS tracking of my phone while I am riding for all those curious to see my progress. Look for a link posted to the blog on race day!
If anyone is feeling generous, I am still accepting donations on my fundraising page here -- don't feel obligated, but it does go to a great cause!
