Thought y'all might be interested in attending. It is a benefit ride for Bikes Belong and this leads into the National Bike Summit.

Here's the info/registration site for the ride: http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?EventID=12385

If you can't attend the ride, but want to sponsor someone who IS attending the ride:

Here's my donation link: https://www.pledgereg.com/19193

If you'd like to donate to Tim directly, here's his donation link: https://www.pledgereg.com/19449

I haven't received the exact route yet. Once I do, I'll be planning out my ride. I don't know how/if I'm going to set up the ride yet. I may ride to Philly over the weekend and ride the last 2 legs with Tim. If anyone is interested in joining part/all of the ride, let me know.

Very cool ride! Would have loved to do the Philly to DC portion of it with you if it were over the weekend. Enjoy it Pete!

Got the go-ahead from both work and spouse to do the whole thing. Going to embarrass myself by trying to ride from Boston to DC in 5 days. Still working out logistics. Probably take the train up.

Thank you, SQ for your support and for your donation. It is much appreciated.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Dirt's out there today, slogging away at the last portion between Baltimore and DC. I think he did 71 miles yesterday, averaging 19mph. That's not slow.

Thanks y'all.

The ride was great, definitely a lot of fun, and not without some unexpected challenges. The cool thing was that we raised close to $20,000 for Bikes Belong, we met a lot of great people along the way and I finally found a way that I can be a bicycle advocate using my legs instead of my mouth and brain.

Thanks for all who donated. I believe I ended up being the #3 fund raiser for the ride.

Sincere thanks for all the support.

Tim Johnson and Jeremy Dunn mugging for the camera... Somewhere in the industrial area south of Philly.

Congratulations and thank you!

For those of you who are slow (like me), you can still donate at Pete's link above -- it says through the end of the month.
