2-day 150mi Ride Louisville, KY -- Anyone care to join?

It is the Ride to Victory (www.ridetovictory.org).

It is like the MS-150; but for cancer research.

The fundraising commitment is $2500 - my girlfriend and I have signed up and created a team "Sumo Cycles" and would like to extend the invite to anyone here who would like to join us.

You are welcome to contact me via BF or sumo.cycles@gmail.com

Hope some of you can join us - don't let the $2500 scare you away. We have several ideas.

Bill,

I'm signed up for that ride too. I've raised a little over half the required $2500 so far, and have until late August to get the rest of it.

I'll be the guy on the blue LWB recumbent.

I'm VERY tempted to throw in! I'll give you a yes or no before May 1st. Got to see if the family can survive without me for a weekend!

Samantha and I would LOVE to have you guys join our team. Neither she nor I are advanced cyclists - but we love to ride.



I am working on team jerseys, a sweat shirt, etc - IF anyone would be interested. ((hrm...maybe that could be a team fundraiser??))

By the way...ride to victory doesn't charge anything if you are already signed up and want to join a team.
