A great ride for a great cause

Here were are on Saturday, at the Ride for Missing Children: Lindy, whom we've recruited for Thursday nights, Anne, Michele, and me. It was kind of chilly, but it didn't rain! I've never ridden an organized benefit before, but according to the more experienced among us, riders aren't usually treated like royalty. We sure were. At every stop, there were hundreds of screaming, cheering kids wanting to slap us five (try doing this, on bike, clipped in, at about .5 MPH—someone's bound to topple). There was also a LOT of food. I'm sure I ate more than I burned...

Anyway, we really want all of the Bettys who can make it to join us next year. We promise you won't be disappointed. It's a very doable pace—about 14 MPH, and it felt like 50 miles, maybe, not 100!
