MS 150 Bike Ride to Lake Erie

I would like to thank all my family, friends and coworkers who contributed to this cause.

With anticipation and excitement, I waited with hundreds of cyclists for the start of a 2 day journey covering 150 miles. In my mind I was wondering if I could overcome my own personal challenges. It turns out, I'm a much better photographer than a cyclist- MS 150 slideshow

What made this event most extraordinary was the riders. I saw everything from the serious cyclist to the average biker but they all shared a common goal. For some it was more personal, as they wore the names of individuals they were riding for on their shirts. Mile after mile, hill after hill, the riders persevered with such determination to make a difference in the lives of people with MS.

A special thank you to Laurie, Theresa, Lynn !
