Trying the new cassette on some hills
Riding a loop close to home to try out my new wheelset and 12-28 cassette. Unfortunately, the cassette is pretty loose, so I will need to bring it to the shop afterall. Overall, a pretty decent short recovery ride. Overall, realizing I might need this easy recovery week more than I originally thought.
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!
