I use these rides to raise funds through Team Fisher House for the Fisher House Foundation, to support the group in its efforts to help military families. For more information on my efforts, check out my fundraising page.
The bottom line is, I sweat, you donate. Or, at least I hope you do.
So I’ve already finished a couple training group rides (in addition to my regular training), the 50-mile Farmlands Tour through Monmouth County, and a 25-mile Cycle Bucks County (Pa.) tour.
And here’s what I have set for the rest of the summer and fall:
- July 29: Tour de Long Valley (~62 miles)
- Aug. 4: Princeton Event (I’m trying for 100 miles)
- Aug. 25: Lake Nockamixon Century (Shooting for the 75-mile ride)
- Sept. 9: NYC Century Ride (100 miles)
- Sept 15: RCDCU Bike-a-Thon for Prostate Cancer (55 miles)
- Sept 30: Twin Lights Ride (Going to try for 100 miles, for my third Century this season)
So that’s the schedule. I decided to try the 75-mile route of the Lake Nockamixon ride because it’s too close to the NYC Century ride, and I’d already committed to that.
I’ll be using this space as a training journal, keeping my sponsors informed of what I’m doing, and also serving as a point of reference for me.
Please go to my fundraising page, read about why I do this, and then read about the Fisher House Foundation. And if you’re as moved by what they do as I was please take a few minutes to donate what you can.
