I found the cutest bike girl car sticker the other day and didn’t get it. Well now I can’t find it. 😦 plus I can’t remember exactly what it looked like. So in my searching I found these two and decided to get them. I found them on Cafe Press!!!
So of course after I posted about the Bike MS weekend, I thought I things I didn’t put in there.
So first, yes I was mad at my two friends for not stopping/turning around/not telling me that they were going to do the century ride. BUT!!! I’m proud of them for finishing it, it’s not easy to be on a bike for 9+ hours and the last 26 miles were all up hill and very hard. No I’m not mad at them anymore but I won’t bet on them staying with me hehehehe. Thankfully I know i can do it all by myself which is a good thing. Also next year, the 3 wonderful ladies I rode with on Sunday are already scheming to do the 60 mile route and I would love to have the group of us do it together.
Second, the volunteers at the event, seriously that’s what makes this such a good weekend. They fed us, drove SAG vans (SAG is an acronym for “support and gear” or “support and grub”), rode motorcycles, manned the rest stops, at the medic/aid tents, gave massages, and you get the picture. I made sure to thank all of them. As I was riding, I thanked every police officer that was on the route. I waved at the motorcycles as they rode past us (many had a route they patrolled) and toward the end the SAG vans were checking with us to see if we were ok. I made sure to give a big thumbs up to everyone that passed me. I was seriously surprised when I got to lunch and they had a gluten free option, so when dinner came around I asked (was told no by two others) but this one guy on the end called me down and had food for me. So they thought of everything. So I made sure to tell them THANK YOU!!!!
