This past week wasn't a great one for riding, but it was great for fundraising.
First the bike news. I only got 25 miles in. 16 on Tuesday night with Mary. We rode up to Rockford via the White Pine Trail. Then on Sunday morning I put in 9 miles on the mountain bike. Along with 7 other JDRF team members we attacked Luton Park. But from the bumps, bruises, cuts and falls I'd say Luton fought back pretty well. Nothing serious and it was an absolutely fabulous morning to ride.
In fundraising news we passed a major threshold. We have now raised over $8,500. That means two of the three Scheidels are paid up to go to Death Valley. We just need $3,500 more to send the last one. We have until we leave in October to raise the money so we aren't worried. Still, if you haven't donated yet, don't delay. Just click on one of the "Donate to..." links on the left.
And thanks for your support.
