   Congrats! Keep going!

2020 will be my 7th year riding to help find a cure for cancer.  The COVID pandemic has forced the annual ride weekend, which always takes place the first weekend of August, to be cancelled.  But the fight to end cancer has not been cancelled!  All riders are being asked to create challenges of their own that they can fundraise towards in place of the ride weekend event. 


Normally, I participate in the 45 mile ride from downtown Columbus to New Albany.  But this year I will be riding the T.J. Evans Trail round-trip from Johnstown to Newark twice back-to-back for a total of 56 miles.  My challenge is going to take place on the Saturday, August 8th, the same weekend that Pelotonia was originally scheduled.


This year I am going to miss riding with the other thousands of riders.  I am going to miss riding through the small towns with people yelling "thank you" and marching bands playing songs and motorcycles lining the street revving their motors as we ride by.  I will miss the feeling of entering New Albany and knowing how close you are to the finish and finally crossing the finish line to hundreds of people cheering and my family waiting for me.  And last but not least......the cold beer that awaits after I climb off my bike.  I will keep these thoughts with me as I ride this year alone knowing that I am keeping up the fight.  And I will look forward to next year when hopefully all of these great memories can return.


Thanks for your support!  Beat Cancer!
