The Fat Cyclist is a hoot. Anybody who would nickname himself "fatty" (when he's absolutely not) is going to be an interesting character. I mention Fatty because he has organized the 4th Annual 100 Miles of Nowhere. It is a fun and strange way to raise money for Livestrong. We are going to hold a “local edition” of the ride at Edgemont UMC.
It costs $85, which is a lot for me to pay to ride in an organized event, but you get a ton of great stuff and get to contribute to helping folks with cancer through Livestrong. You will want to sign up soon since they are only sending out schwag boxes to the first 500. I did this ride last year and was impressed with the great stuff.
Update: I didn't get any takers. I'm still doing the ride, and you can come and jeer, as long as you give me money. :) We are going to ride laps around Edgemont (and neighborhood if we can get some intersections blocked off). The really fun part is that in addition to riders, we will have a cheering section of friends at the church, eating, drinking and making fun of us each time we come around. For the right to jeer and mock, they too, will contribute to the cause!
Please pass this on to other cyclists you know. Sign up. And tell your friends and family to come out for hotdogs and hamburgers on Saturday, May 28th at Edgemont UMC. It will be a really good time. Let me know that you will come out and have a great time with me! Post questions to me here in the comments.
To sign up, go over to Twin Six — this page if you’re a man, or this page if you’re a woman — and pick the size of T-shirt you want, then pay the $85 registration. For Fatty's full explanation of the ride details, check out his blog post.
