Cheryl bicycled 91 miles on Sunday Oct 7, 2008. This annual ride was organized by Ed, who coordinates the SAG support and transport of vehicles to the destination. The route was scenic backroads from Barhamsville to Fredericksburg, VA. We rode through the historic counties of James City, New Kent, Hanover, King William, Caroline and Spotsylvania. Two support crew rode in a van which carried the food/coolers for the 17 riders. The weather was sunny and in the low 90’s. We departed Ed’s house at 8:30am and arrived in Fredericksburg at 4pm. Total cyling time was 5 hours and 45 minutes at an average pace of 16mph.

I entered this at the last minute because it was nearby and I can manage to survive 3 miles. Lo and behold……. I won in my age group! As you can see about half of the folks were walkers so competition was not tough. The key to notoriety is to try to beome a big fish in a small pond. Now, if I can only be as lucky for the Virginia Senior Games 20 K bike ride May 13…..

Unofficially, according to prelim results, I came in 2nd in my age group of 12 entries. I don’t know why my swim was a minute slow…..the bike wasn’t bad……the run felt like I was bobbing up and down and not going forward because my legs were so tight……there’s always next year and who is gutsy enough to do it with me???? A team????

The current research on exercise and PD is looking at making BIG amplitude movements and cycling with a fast cadence. Proposals for grant money are being submitted and you can see a synopsis at these sites.
I would love to participate in the 2006 El Tour de Tucson. It will be held Sat, Nov 18, 2006 and you can choose a 35, 66, 80 or 109 mile ride. Money goes to the American Parkinsonâ€™s Disease Association. If I am traveling that far I would opt for the 109 mile route but everybody could do their own route. Think about going to Tucson and having an early Thanksgiving.
I went to the site to learn more about the Tour and the Arizona APDA I&R center. I have heard it is wonderful riding out there.
