I'm signed up, anybody else doing this charity ride?

There's a metric century and a 20 mile, and also a 5k run/walk.

You have to raise $1,000 - easy in DC though, it's flush with money! And there's a big party and concert afterward.

Don't worry, Ann, as soon as I've set up the online contributions and all that, you can be sure that I'll hit up my generous good friends here!

They're doing a few training rides in the area. I rode one yesterday. There were a couple of newbies who were just starting out with cycling, and a 14-year-old kid who has been heavily involved in Best Buddies at his school. The best part was a guy who seemed to have autism who rode with another group. He had numbers left over from his last group ride. He could barely talk, but he was a good rider. A nice group to see overall.

I've thought about doing it, but have to wait until my schedule is more clear.

I think I may sign up for this. Since i'm not running the half marathon in VA beach and I am staying in the area, this would be a great goal to take its place.

I just filled out the form to volunteer as a course marshall. It will be a terrific day. Thanks for alerting me to this.

Good, that means you can give to me instead. ;)

Good idea - they do need volunteers, including people to drive VIPs around in Audis all day, and then to the free after-ride concert/party. If I weren't riding, that's what I'd do.

Of course! That's a large commitment, I'll be glad to help.
