Hey All,

Wow! Thanks to the overwhelming generosity of my friends and family, we raised $1,020.01 for the American Diabetes Association. That made me the 3rd most generously sponsored rider on our company team. The team captain thanked me personally after the ride, and I extend that thanks to you as well.

Ahhh… the ride. Guess I should learn not to listen to my co-workers. Was getting scared based on laments of “big hills both ways” as reported by my co-workers who did the ride last year. Some people drove the route for this year and said there was a giant hill at the end that was “killer”. Since the ride was in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Rog and I did two weekend rides in preparation, one so grueling that we both had dry heaves from exhaustion and dehydration near the end. Did the ride on Sunday (in the rain). It was so flat, I didn’t have to shift gears until the very end. The “killer” hill at the end… had to shift down one gear for about a third of a block.

Anyway, here’s a shot of me (on the left) leaving the starting point with my friend Robbin.
