And, we’re off…

Well, the snow held off and surfaces are just wet so far.  I woke at 3:17 to find it was snowing pretty hard, but none of it stuck and it has stopped.  And the wind has died down.  It’s been terrible.

This morning at 9:00 about 40 cyclists will depart on an adventure that will take us across parts of two countries, form Calgary, Alberta Canada to Lewiston, Maine.  We’re pedaling in support Wellspring Calgary of the Cancervive organization and the Patrick Dempsey Center for Cancer Hope and Healing.

We’ll arrive in Lewiston on October 12th, coming across the Longley Bridge into Lewiston from Auburn at about 11:00 am.  Come on down to welcome my new friends.

Keep checking back for updates from the road.

    What do you mean terrible?….Did I ever tell you about the time I did a century in a Hurricane? What doesn’t kill ya makes you stronger. I saw the weather forecast…looks like snow and cold is in your immediate future. Hopefully it warms up and melts before you get there.

    Keep the faith brother and lube up!

    Hey Andy –
    Just saw you on TV! So proud of you my friend. They said you’ve already ridden 400 miles. WOW! It looked cold. Brandon spoke well and has a face for TV. I hope it was a good experience for him too. Travel safely, pedal hard and we’ll see you on this end!
