Friday = PERFECT day for a 50 mile ride!

On Friday, my friend Jayson and I met up for a 50 mile ride. I had the day off, so it was a perfect opportunity to get out for a long ride. We started out in West Allis and hopped on a bike path heading west to Dousman, passing Carrol College and through a few small towns on the way. Our turnaround point was at Bicycle Doctor in Dousman, WI.  While we were stopped I strolled through the store to check it out.  Pretty great store actually.  They have a huge selection of bikes including Orbea and Cervelo bikes.  Definitely will have to head there again soon.

The ride was pretty normal.  Not a lot of exciting things happened, although there were a lot of chipmunks sharing the path with us which was entertaining.  A solid 49 total miles in about 2.5 hours.  Felt pretty good even though I was a little sore from running 2 days before. :)

When I post tomorrow about my work commute I should have some great pictures from the ride.  I decided to play photographer as I was riding today, so I got some good shots.  I should have the crazy house in Cudahy as well!

LIVESTRONG Update

I signed up as a bluegrass fundraising community leader last week and got a packet full of usefull information.  I’m reading through it right now and finalizing my strategy and will report back as soon as I have something finalized. 

I’ve also got my first Riding for a Reason teammate as well!  Jenni will be committing to miles for LIVESTRONG as well.  I’ll get her bio up soon!  Welcome Jenni!
