Beth, Karen and I made our way from Indianapolis to Terre Haute, IN, an 85-mile trek by bike. Was a pretty tough ride, with about 8 miles through gravel, temperatures hitting the high 80s and winds (in my face?!) that were 15 to 20 MPH. So took almost 7 hours, and thank god my arse is feeling fiiine.
Beth and Karen did a WONDERFUL job as SAGgers. And SAG officially, at least for the next few days, stands for Sexy Ass Girls!
During the ride today, I met a man named Gary who was riding with a “cancer” bike shirt. He too is raising money and supports two organizations, “Spokes of Hope” and “Miles for Myeloma”. We ended up trading bracelets, and I proudly gave the bracelets for Bonnie J Addario Lung Cancer Foundation and Lung Cancer Alliance. You will see the two pictures he gave me in the pictures below.
At night, we finished with a meal at Moggers, a pug with good sandwiches, burgers and beers. All in all, another productive (and tiring) day. Heading to Saint Elmo, IL tomorrow and then to Saint Louis!
