Velosano 5 Recap
Thank you again for supporting my ride in Velosano 5! The weather was near perfect. We began with some light rain in the morning which disappated in about an hour leading to a beautiful mid and late morning. All my training paid off as the ride was very comfortable from beginning to end. My average speed throught the ride was 14.9mph with a top speed of over 38mph. I finished strong with an average speed of 17mph for the last 8 miles. After completing the bicycle ride, I served as the lead motorcycle rider leading the 2 day Velosano riders home from Wooster, Ohio. The front pack of the 2 day riders included the woman's Olympic Silver Medalist from Rio. Wow! She was really fast! I clocked her at one point at 30mph uphill! OMG!
On the fundraising front, with your help, I finished 16th, raising $11,600. I rode for Team Lerner Foundation which finished 8th at $70,744. Nice! Velosano closes out their numbers in October but I am hopeful that we will reach $5million for this year - all to support cancer research right here in Cleveland!
I remain humbled by your thoughtfullness, generousity, and friendship. Thanks again for making Velosano 5 a huge success!
Warmest Regards Always
