with a little help from my friends

A great boost today - several of Susan's on-line friends left me messages of support.  Thanks very much, I really appreciate your words of encouragement, and will remember them when things get tough.  No matter how well or hard I train, no matter how light the bike or how good the weather, I always hit the wall somewhere on the way to Austin, when I have to dig deep and put the pain and fatigue behind me and focus on the road ahead.  People with MS have to do that every day.

Good luck on the MS150... I'll be there too! Sadly, looking like rain along the route this weekend!

This isn't quite right but it's close. 9.5 miles, about 40 minutes.

Terry Hershey Park

10 miles of safe, paved cycling bliss - except for all the foot traffic

The Sealy ride

45 miles through very pretty Texas countryside. Looks benign but there's a very hilly section at mile 35.

It's on the Katy prairie - flat, flat, flat
