The Ride of Silence takes place tonight at 7:00pm out of the Riverside Park island shelter entrance. This is a ride taking place across the country to remember those who have been killed or injured while riding bikes. I really wanted to participate (especially after becoming one of the "injured"), but my husband has a company bowling party tonight. That should be a blast, too, but my thoughts and prayers will be with the victims of car-bike accidents and their loved ones tonight.
In other news, I think I've successfully talked my friends Cat and Melissa into doing the 100 Grand with me. I'm so excited about that! We'll be able to both entertain and encourage each other when our legs start begging us to stop pedalling.
I'm also excited because it's going to be 80 degrees F today. When I got up this morning, I decided to ride my bike to work. It's a good thing I did, because after I got all ready to go, I discovered that my husband has my car keys. I would have had to ride my bike or my Spree in anyway. What a beautiful day it will be!
