Riding bikes and Helping those in need, How can that not be a Great thing!!
The last few years we have changed the Finish line Roll-in just a bit. As those that have ridden the ride with us know on Sunday we ALL cross the Finishline together, here's the change.
Last year in Honor of ALL living with MS we all approached the Finishline, Dismounted and Walked behind Carmen Cutler in her walker as she crossed the Finish line one step ahead of us. Carmen has been battling MS for years and has been a part of Our Team for the last 4. Over those 4 years we have been able to watch Carmen's Daughter Cierra mature into a wonderful young women of 17. I can't imagine Carmen's life without her Daughters constant help and support.
AGAIN THIS YEAR Cierra has decided that she is "RIDING for her Mom"
(I should mention Cierra is not a cyclist.......yet)
In typical Team Shoebacca fashion members have come together with training, a bike, helmet, gear and all the support that Young Cierra will need to Make it to the Finish line and walk across it with her Mom.
We, Team Shoebacca unfortunately have many riders that are intimately effected by this disease.
THIS is "WHY we ride"
Lets Ride again and Hopefully start shortening that list with a Cure.
The Ride leaves out of Irvine and we plan on have a Team getogether on Friday night before the roll.. It was a Blast last year and we are doing it again this year. Some of us will bike up from Carlsbad on Friday, some take the train and some will drive up on Saterday AM. The Host hotel sells out fast. If interested here is the link. When booking rooms make sure to tell them you are with Team Shoebacca and are participating in the MS 150.
Most stay at the Doubletree Inn, Irvine.
This will be our Eighth year riding as Team Shoebacca and I am really excited.
For some of us this will be our 15 th year riding the MS 150 and we wouldnt miss it.
If youve done the ride before then you know how Great the Route, the Friends and the overall feeling of being able to use our Passion for riding to really make a difference in the life of someone living with Multiple Sclerosis.
If you havent done the ride before..Perfect we can help you with that.
The overnight party location is in Carlsbad at the Sheraton Hotel ontop of the hill in Carlsbad. Right next to the Crossings Golf Course, Awesome!!
I know it seems like aways off but Calendar the date, sign up and Lets Do It,....... Again!
We've registered Team SHOEBACCA for the Bike MS Tour because WE KNOW THAT RIDING 150 MILES IS NOWHERE AS DIFFICULT AS CONFRONTING A LIFETIME WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
Our Passion is Cycling!
Lets use it to help those in need.
