200 km in 2 days
It all began with an invite to something new, I love "new" stuff, new ideas, new challenges etc.
Well I was invited to ride for the BC Lung association with a few friends, had to fundraise some
cash first, that was easier than I thought and I raised over $1000.00 but now had to do the ride.
Over 400 participants all on pretty fast 18-21 speed bikes, me I ride a GIGI by Electra and didn't want
to use someone else's bike as it would be like doing a marathon in someone else's shoes (duh) The
ride was from South Surrey to Cultus Lake (first day) and back the next....tons of peddalling but lots
of cheers and support for me and this heavy bike, I did it!! Never have ridden that far before and I
had a great time, rode a total of 14 hours in 2 days and we were all treated like royalty.
SO FUN, fed so well, looked after so well I cannot begin to describe what a great time this event
was. Want to do it next year with a bigger team and maybe some more folks will ride their
cruisers with me? I am from the vancouver island and ride about 80% of the time, got my wet
gear at MEC recently so i can keep going thru the monsoons, fun is out there...kitty
Too bad I don't know how to add my finish photo from the ride, this is all new to me this blog thing., hope it makes sense K
