I have just registered for the 2009 Bike for Multiple Sclerosis: Waves to Wine. It goes from UCSF in San Francisco to Lake Sonoma in Healdsburg, CA over 2 days. The longest route is ≈ 175mi and ≈11,000ft of climbing.
I would love to raise some support for this awesome charity, one of my friends mother's is stricten with dabilitating diesease as was my own grandmother. I figure no matter how much i suffer on this ride it is incomparable to theirs. My suffering at least involves the ability to move freely, something they will never do again.
