Winter Can't Stop Me: Prepping for the 2013 MS 150 Ride

This spring I rode through rain, wind, and yes, even snow. Fingers crossed it doesn't snow a couple of inches in May again, but even if it does I'm confident I have the wherewithal to handle it. This year I've been training on my new All-City Big Block during my daily commutes to and from work. I've also snuck in some longer rides with the Minnesota Ironman Bicycle Ride in Stillwater this year and the ever-present drive to bike further and harder with my Minnesota comrades. Tara has also stepped up her game with the introduction of her first geared bike, so there are bound to be plenty of Stillwater rides to indulge in the deliciousness that is Leo's Grill and Malt Shop!

Once again, all this biking has a very rewarding goal in mind — fundraising for the fight against multiple sclerosis by biking 150 miles in the annual Bike MS: C.H. Robinson Worldwide MS 150 Ride. This year I took the fight one step further and decided to recruit a team of individuals with a common goal. I've setup a team of 15 biking enthusiasts and those who are simply interested in doing some good at my new job, Periscope.

Biking is only half the battle, and I'll need everyone else's help for the rest. Donating to help my efforts won't go unnoticed as you will be helping the more than 2.1 million people dealing with MS. I hope you will also make your mark against MS by supporting my fundraising efforts.

If you’d like to keep up to date on my progress and ride updates please feel free to follow me on InstagramTwitter, or this blog.

See that snow and frozen waterfall in April? My bike doesn't care one bit.
