Out for another great ride
Rode the Mt Carmel 28 mile loop, but due to road construction on my road, had to take a detour at the start, adding about 0.5 miles. Felt really in sync the whole ride, really comfortable for the ride, legs moving at a nice even pace. Started laboring a bit toward the end, but held on to avg over 19 mph for the first time this year! Avg Cadence 87
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
