Approximately a year ago, for several complicated reasons, cycling became part of my exercise routine. As a kid I remember being in separable from my bike and thought it befitting a try. Less than a year and not one, but two bikes, later it seems this was a long time in the making.
Seeking more than a commute or a weekend ride in the park, I registered for my first “century.” For those unfamiliar with cycling terminology this means a 100 mile ride. However, this seemed too self-fulfilling, to make it more meaningful I found “bike to the beach,” a 100 mile ride from NYC to the Hamptons to raise money for autism research. Upon some friends hearing about my endeavor I was asked to partake in a second ride, raising money for juvenile diabetes “ride to Montauk,” however, this ride is 150 miles!
So I train. In comparison to what those afflicted with these conditions have to endure daily, this ride is cake, so I’m happy to do it.
