DC AIDS Ride 4: Day 0: Raleigh, North Carolina


Day 0: Raleigh, North Carolina
Wednesday, June 23

Took the Metro, then the Maryland commuter rail to Baltimore-Washington International Airport. The train ride was uneventful, restful. On the shuttle bus from the MARC station to the airport I met Nick, whom I identified as a rider because of the telltale Camelback and helmet. Another rider by name of Pete joined us on the shuttle.

DC AIDS Ride 4: Pre-ride Anticipation

Well, the day is almost here... tomorrow I'll be heading to Raleigh, North Carolina to begin an adventure unlike any I've ever been a part of. I'll be biking for 330+ miles over 4 days to arrive in Washington DC on Sunday afternoon. This is all as a part of the Washington DC AIDS Ride.

I've raised over $2,000 in pledges for AIDS-related services in the Washington DC Area.

I've trained for over 5 months, woken up earlier on weekends than I do on weekdays, and spent hours under the scorching sun.

Now it's time for the test.

DC AIDS Ride 4: Ride 15: Maryland's Eastern Shore


Ride 15: Maryland's Eastern Shore Saturday, June 12 Distance: 60 miles

Days like today make me wonder whether or not being on a bicycle for hours on end is a sane idea.

I woke up at around 7 AM this morning.  This business of waking up early in the morning on weekends is bound to cause some damage, either psychic or emotional.

DC AIDS Ride 4: Ride 14: Washington DC to Annapolis, MD


Ride 14: Washington DC to Annapolis, MD Sunday, June 6 Distance: 77 miles

I've decided that SUVs and 90% of their drivers piss me off.

Today was an impressive sounding feat: a bike ride between the capital of the country and the capital of the state of Maryland.

This weekend was supposed to be my first weekend of back-to-back rides.  It would have had two journals and blinking text and I-did-its all over the place.  But Saturday did not happen, not as I had planned.
