Buttercup and I are going to have a wet and chilly ride tomorrow in the End Hunger Calvert County charity bike ride. We're doing the metric century (100km- 64miles) route. This is always a great ride that is VERY well run and a lot of fun.
So let's take just a minute to focus on charity rides!
Do you know somebody with a disease that has a prominent charity ride? Dad has Diabetes? A friend or co-worker has MS? MD? TB? AIDS? Cancer? Some guy who rides a bike who has a blog has/had a brain tumor? Go ride. Get them on board for support- maybe your co-worker will help you fund raise? Maybe they'll come out and ring a cowbell for you? Cheer? Hold up embarrassing signs? SWEET!
And use your social media connections for fundraising. You'd be amazed at how much closer you can be to your goal with just a little ask. Maybe your company will help out by letting everyone know? Or matching donations?
All good stuff. So we'll be out there in the rain and cold tomorrow morning (BC will be bundled up and I'll have those damn fenders on) out to help the members of our community who just need a little extra help!
So sign up for a charity ride for something that will provide some more incentive for you to GO RIDE YOUR BIKE!!
