    Howdy from Austin!

    I am 58 years old, and semi-retired. I recently started biking with my 28-year-old daughter. I purchased a sweet used De Rosa A+ when the bike my daughter saved from the garbage truck proved unworthy (but has been salvaged for my son). My daughter and I will ride from Austin to Hot Springs, Arkansas in April. The ride will not be supported and is designed to be a fundraiser for my wheelchair-bound 8-year-old granddaughter. She will join us for the first and last day of the ride. I am excited about learning from y’all. I have already found many helpful ideas and I look forward to any helpful hints on what to do or not do as we prepare for this ride.

    No link yet but I hope some time soon. We have a lot of work to do. Sadly last weekend as I prepared to take some pictures of my bike and my granddaughter's chariot attached to my daughter's bike I caused my daughter to drop and break her camera! I will get a link and post our training activities soon.

    If what you're doing is through a not-for-profit, you could also post this in the Charity Events forum.

    Always like to see photos, so I'll be waiting .
