Less than two weeks to go until my 200 km bike trek for the lung association of Ontario!
I finally made the dive yesterday before my training run and bought a pair of road tires for my bicycle. I now have much less difficulty pedaling and have been able to achieve a faster base speed than with my nubby tires. My training made use of the nubby tires for as long as possible to allow myself to grow accustomed to a harder ride than with road tires. This seems to have worked quite successfully. After switching over the the road tires I successfully rode a total of 85km yesterday, from the Ambassador Bridge to Belle River and back, in under 4 hours. My training has prepared me well enough that I did not fall victim to either shortness of breath or cramps at any time in the ride.
The donations are pouring in as well. I am within a $100 of achieving my goal and this is an easy task at this point. Much thanks goes to those who are supporting me!
If any of my readers want to help me reach my pledge goal of $400, they can visit my donation page. Any little amount, even a dollar, will be of great help! Much thanks!
