Thursday

Today was the last of the spin classes. It was set up with one of our contacts to do some spin classes at the Lakewood YMCA. The object was for us to get the word out about the ride, have the Y promote it a little and maybe raise some extra money. Unfortunately these were not very successful.

Three of us showed up to spin tonight. Only one (Michelle) participated in the class. These things are very popular and she was the only one to get a bike. Oh well, Mark and I didn't complain too much. We are going on a 75 miler in the morning.

Ride/meeting

Today three of the group went on a training ride. Unfortunately I was not with them. The kids and I had a visit with the dentist. I got to the station when they were getting done with the ride. It was in the middle of a downpour and they were all pretty wet. Since I did that yesterday kinda glad I didn't do it again.

There was a photographer from the TNT that took a few shots of them. We then met with the reporter. Funny that one of the things she asked about was a potential blog. Mark let her know about the Facebook fan page and I told everyone I was trying this out. The article for the paper should be out early next week.

Stay tuned for more ...

Training Ride

Went on a 25 mile training ride today. It was very rainy out and I got soaked to the bone. As bad as that may sound, it was actually a bit of a refreshing ride. Ten more days and we will be on the big ole aeroplane to the east coast. New Jersey on the 7th. Ride starts on the 9th. A few more training sessions to go. Tomorrow we meet with the Tacoma News Tribune to do an article.
