Well I’m back from the NYC MS Bike Tour, and I’m happy to report that I finished the 60 mile course (actually it was ~65 miles, but I’m not going to bill anyone for the extra 8%). All did not quite go well - around mile 25 my legs started cramping pretty badly, which is unusual since I’ve done plenty of 30-40 mile bike rides this past summer at a much faster pace with no problems. It turns out that my problem was hydration (here’s a hint for all you readers out there: your sole means of hydration the day before an athletic event should not be a 32-ounce iced-tea). So while I finished, it took me closer to 7 hours instead of the 4-4½ hours it should have taken. Lesson learned.

If you’re curious, here’s the 60-mile bike route. Yes, there is photographic evidence that I made the ride. And, I’m definitely going for the century next year.

Thanks to Bennett, Lance, Chris, Kristy, Laura, Jason, Tim, Heather, Kate, Ted Sensei, Joe, Allison, Jeff, Margaret, Melanie, Mentha, Youssef, Big Sister, Mom, Alvin, Eric, and the 2 or 3 people I’m sure I forgot to list for donating to the cause. Big thanks to Gary Glickman at Wilson Ihrig for putting this ride together.

By the way, it’s not too late to make a donation.
