A few months ago I met Lee through the internet. I was riding my local BikeMS event for my Mom and my good friend Aaron. This was my second year riding the event and the first year as a team captain. Our Team Upness ended up raising over $7,000! Pretty cool.
Around the same time Lee was riding his local BikeMS in Utah for his friend Leith. Lee didn’t just “ride” his event though. Oh no, that’s not enough, he rode his his first Century AND he did it on a fatbike! Oh yeah, he added 1 pound of weight to every $100 he raised too! He even made the news! So I knew this guy was rad, maybe even a little crazy. My kind of guy.
We’ve kept in touch and Lee hatched a crazy plan. What if he could get a group of fatbikers together to have a full fatbike team at the next BikeMS event in Utah? Lee reached out to me and I signed up right away. Traveling to ride your bike with new friends in new places is fun, but doing those things AND doing some sort of good is RADICAL!!
So I’m going to be traveling from Los Angeles, CA to Logan, UT to participate in BikeMS Harmons Best Dam Bike Ride on June 28th and 29th. I’ve never pedaled there so I’m looking forward to experiencing the state of Utah from the seat of my Mukluk and with some new friends on team Beards and Gears. I’m doing this to raise awareness of the lame as s#$t disease called MS. I’m doing this for my Mom, for Aaron, for Leith and for everyone else that has a friend or loved one affected by MS. FU MS!
