Why I Ride: I bought a nice bike a couple weeks ago because I wanted to get into casual riding as a stress reliever and as a good way to get some much needed exercise. I have been enjoying it so much that I wanted to find some sort of a non competitive riding event to join and found End Alzheimer's.
With this event, I'm able to ride wherever I want and for as far as I want while earning donations for a good cause. The event takes place on the morning of April 18th. My plan is to ride 20 miles on the Rail Trail between Saranac and Ionia. My daughter Eden and I have already ridden from our home in Saranac to the middle of the M-66 bridge in Ionia and back which was a 15 mile round trip, so with two or three weeks of practice (and the padded cycling shorts I just bought) I know I can make it 20 miles.
If you feel like it you can donate to the cause in my name, if not I will be happy if you just cheer me on!
