So it looks like the Wounded Warrior Project have made their tentative schedule for SoldierRide 2010. The Lone Star State schedule is San Antonio – Austin – Dallas, TX, March, 17-21, 2010. Wow, we get to ride with a tailwind!!! Outstanding! The start is in San Antone on Wednesday, so that gives to thoughts of riding to the ride again.
A motivated team of individuals could make San Antone in 2 days from DFW, but 3 days would give time for beer and cigars. Just a thought. At any rate, this format of starting South and ending North works great for DFW folks. If you have 3 days off, you could drive down to SA and start there. Only 2 days off? How about starting in Austin? And when we're done, it's just a hop, skip and a jump back home.
Hey looking forward to it as always. I hope this year we can enjoy the ride more and not push as hard. ANd I realy hope we can get some more of the WWP folks to ride along. I like the south to north if we can work it in with the WWP rides.
100 plus temperatures these days I need H2O after a good ride. Currently I been spoiled while riding in San Marcos w/ good trails then a quick ride down to the river to drink some cold ones.
Website I designed for payday cash company.
Not yet. We'll probably get on that here in the next few weeks. In fact, we would love to have some additional input. There are some roads that we've been on along the route, but it might be nice to have a different route as well. Some of the ride will be with the WWP proper, so they will dictate that part of the route. The other part will be the rides between the rides, where they soldiers get shuttled, and we get a chance to stretch our legs a bit.
Plans are also underway to have a charity ride Saturday March 27th in the DFW area. This is a great oppurtunity to ride with the folks that have given so much for our country, even if you can't take the time to ride up from San Antone.
Everyone is allowed. We just kind of shadow the actual Wounder Warrior Project guys. They're the real show, we just ride down to show our support for them. So if you want in, you're in.
Yeah, what Dave said. Whiskey and Cigars is a good start. Then whatever clothes you have to pack around them to make you feel safe that the bottle won't break. ;^) Seriously, I overpacked both years that we've done this thing. I might try packing a little lighter this year, depending on what the consensus is for lodging.
It looks like there's enough interest to do a lunch. How does Friday the 27th work for everyone? If I pencil that in, maybe I'll get off my butt and put together a route. Then we can pick it apart over lunch and refreshments. If lunch doesn't work, we might be able to do a happy hour but would probably get less done that way.
I may just plan on being logistical support and doing the ride in Dallas. I just spent almost 3 months on crutches and physical therapy and have a follow up MRI either right before Christmas or just after the new year. It apears I'm getting frail in my old age.
BTW, I have swapped messages with another BF'er who live in Arkansas. He rides, his son rides, and his grandson rides. The grandson is one of the guys this thing is about, and he has his own hand cycle. I hope to at least get them down for the Dallas ride.
