May 31 Ride Update

Wednesday, May 20, 2009 at 2:42 pm Leave a comment


I spoke with some really cool people at Drexel today (to get my chemistry minor approved and all official) and ended up deciding to go ‘the next step’ with the ride that I’m planning for the 31st.

I might really need to have a good name for this ride. Next week, the event will most likely be announced on the Drexel ‘Daily Digest’, which alerts all 20,000 or so students about events and things that are worthy of their interest. I spoke with a very nice woman in the Drexel Relations office who said it will be put into the Digest, and has even ideas to maybe alert other media about it.    Awesome!

That being said, there are two things that have been finalized:

Ride will start at 10am.   Location and route are still to be determined, but VERY soon. I’m just busy with the school stuff.

This ride will also help raise money for a Traumatic Brain Injury or Safe Bicycling charity. I would appreciate it if you have suggestions on which to involve, but I would especially appreciate it if you bring just a few bucks (or more!) that we will donate to this worthy cause. I’m leaning towards a charity involved with cycling injuries.  This will be finalized and chosen ASAP.

So this is all really happening, and I think it’s at the point that you can tell people that they’re ‘missing out’ if they don’t attend.   Perhaps I should step up my level, too, eh?

Thanks for reading.     If you plan to attend the ride, would you mind commenting just so I can get a head-count? In order to make the mile-17 rest-stop adequately-stocked, I need to have a number.
