Mountain biking at Rosaryville
Got up early this morning and drove over to Rosaryville to find I had the park to myself! Had a great ride, getting in the extension and having a surge of confidence on a great deal of the technical section too, even setting a new PR for the course. Don't have much to write, but it sure is great to have a park to yourself! After I finished, I explored a bit over by where the Bike Doctor Customer Appreciation ride started too, getting in an extra 2 miles too.
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!
