Yesterday, we (daughter Kelsi, son Zachary, & friend Dagny) did the 25 mile Bike for Bob benefit ride in Lewisburg PA. Dr. Robert Bernstein, was a Lewisburg ophthalmologist and was fatally injured in Lewisburg on August 2004. I will remember this because it was one week after my daughter hit the rear end of a dump truck on my old Fuji & was injured, also the same day I had ACL reconstruction, meniscus removal, etc. The BFB benefits the local recreational authority & Rails to Trails. Setting the starting pace was Thomas Dominick, M.D. & the Lewisburg Police over the bridge to Montandon which led to the beautiful rolling country roads of Union & Montour County. Thanks to volunteers! I wish to pat myself on the "ride ride the butt off"! I did the 25 miles & feel just so fine! When we got back, we ventured to the Arts Festival & checked out some of the local Antique Shops.
This was my first ride with a mass. I often would shy away from these events because I lack the confidence. I have to face the next venture next Saturday - MY FIRST MTB race. I am already scared to death! I was told not to look at it as a race, make it a personal endeavor. ~
