Moving Pictures: Cancer Awareness Ride

^Moving pictures – Cancer Awareness from James . See Strava map.

A while back we rode the Cancer Awareness Ride. Rather than post separate pictures I’m posting this Moving Pictures video showing everyone that was on the 38 mile ride. It started at McAllister Park and took the Salado Creek Greenway down to  Southside Lions Park.

There is a section that comes out to a road that goes up to the Ft. Sam Armory, then on the access road to Jack White Park. It’s really the only time you’re out on the road and is about 1 mile long then you’re back on the paved trails. It’s an excellent ride. More to come.

Moving Pictures-The Eagle Ride

Not one to post still pictures (thus, the name Moving Pictures) I’m posting this video to show some of the people that rode the Eagle Ride 40 miler. This was hosted by Team Red White and Blue with Cyclones, Team BGDB, 700c Club and Performance Bike pitching in to help. I’m sure there were other clubs that worked because I saw many different club jerseys. I also know that there were many folks that helped that are not members of any club but made this ride not only possible, but a great event.

I rode the 40 miler with some old and some new friends and had a blast. This area is mostly flat with mellow rollers so for the 40 miles we had about 750 feet of climbing. We also had a head wind going out on this out and back course.

It was raining at my house in the morning and my usual rule of thumb is that if it’s raining at my house I won’t go. But I really wanted to ride so I went anyway. Good thing I did. The day cleared up and there was no rain on the ride. Great people and great ride. Thanks to all that made it happen!
