As some of you know, I love riding bicycles. As a kid a bicycle provided me with the quickest way to complete my paper route, to get to my favorite fishing hole, and to meet up with friends. Unfortunately, many kids don’t get the same opportunity to learn to ride a bike that my parents gave me when I was a kid. That’s why on June 28th I’m riding 200 miles in a single day to raise money for the Fast Freddie Foundation.
The Fast Freddie Foundation was created by four-time U.S. National Road Racing champion, Freddie Rodriguez. The Fast Freddie Foundation provides underprivileged children with bicycles and safety equipment. Last year the foundation donated bicycles to an elementary school in my school district.
This year I’m joining in the fundraising by riding in Dennis and Freddie’s Excellent Adventure. There are actually four official routes that can be ridden as part of the adventure. I’ve chosen the longest one. Those of you who live within a reasonable driving distance to Turner, Maine can still register to join us. Those who live further away can participate remotely.
I’m hoping to raise $1 per mile in donations for a total of $200 which I’ll personally match. If you’re so inclined, you can contribute on my donation page.
