ALS ride in Napa

2006-08-21 20:50:51.340862+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Okay, it's getting to the point where I really need to take some time and revamp Flutterby so that we can split some announcement type things off to the side, and put things that don't really need archives or archived messages somewhere. For instance...

This weekend's ride included a stop in Point Reyes Station, a town that has a lot of bike parking, and whose bakery does a brisk business serving carbs to people crankin' out the miles. One of the people I talked to there where we were hanging out was a part of R.N. Field Construction, and he was putting together a team from his company to ride the ALS Association Greater Bay Area September 24th fundraising rides.

One of the things that struck me about this is that it's available in 10 mile, 25 mile and metric century distances. Given that we've billed our metric half-century (31 miles) that climbs over Big Rock as a "family fun ride", this is clearly a different world. However, in communicating my "thank you"s off to the various volunteers I've realized that there's a need for some of those shorter rides. Here's such an opportunity.
