No, just nosing around and trying to think about what organized rides I might do this year. I came across the site for World T.E.A.M. Sports, which teams disabled with able-bodied athletes for various events. They are doing a bike ride, Face of America, in May:
"May 3-4 , 2008 - 2008 Face of America. A bike ride to honor, thank and actively include servicemen who have been severely injured in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. This 110 mile bike ride starts in Bethesda, MD and ends in historic Gettysburg, PA. Ride side by side with the servicemen."
I'm an Air Force vet, and a civilian DoD employee, so I thought this might be a great way to show support. But it's a one-way ride, so I was just wondering how I'd get back home. (Of course, I guess I should also wonder about how I'd get to Bethesda.
But that I can probably cobble together on my own knowledge.)
