Handyguy and crew are on their way home! After talking to Handyguy last night, he decided that between a sore back and backside, he would start his trip home in Belle Center. It is so nice that they are able to do that. The support team that is involved in making this ride a success are just awesome. I never realized what went into a ride like this to make it successful, but I can tell you now, I wouldn’t want to try to do it alone! I have seen things from trucks packed full of gear, food, bikes, bike repair and even motorcycles for safety to include sweeping out the gravel in a corner so no one slides and gets hurt!
Everyone should start rolling into Youngs Dairy between noon and 2pm or so just in case you would like to come see them home. This would make their day!
Don’t forget, this is to support 4 awesome charities and you can visit here to show your support (in the form of any amount of donation). I know times are tough, so even a sharing of the post is showing your support.
I will have pics of the closing this afternoon for you when I get home, but for now, I am headed for visiting of my mother-in-law who suffers from Alzheimer’s.
Have a good day and we will have more this evening.
The 165 mile 2-day ride starts in Yellow Springs, Ohio at Young’s Jersey Dairy and the first half of the ride ends at Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio. The second part is getting back home the same route. There are also one day rides. Handyguy rides for his mother who has Alzheimer’s, but all four of the charities above will benefit from your support. If you would like to donate, donations for the ride may be made through August 30th by visiting here. All donations are appreciated.
The ride benefits 4 awesome charities and raised $80,000 in 2011.
Let’s see if we can get even more this year!
Thank You All
Larry, AKA “Handyguy”
