Texas Time Trials
// August 16th, 2011 // Uncategorized
After talking about it for more than a year, Todd ‘OT’ Gillman and I mailed off our application to enter the 6-hour event in the UMCA Texas Time Trials on September 22-24. What we didn’t know a year ago is that we would be riding a tandem!
Please pray for us as we train and prep, as well as for good teamwork and communication that is essential to successful tandem riding. I’m trying hard to not be a “Back saddle driver”
I am thinking of making this into a fund raising ride, similar to the MS150 with the proceeds going to support one or more of our International spokes (or “spokes-to-be”). Can you pledge to help us raise money on a “per mile” basis? Flat donations are great as well, but the per-mile thing may help us go that extra lap when we’re tired…
Also, we will be bringing the trailer and tent as well as some neutral water for other teams that may have underpacked their own support cooler. This ride is self-supported and lots of folks have never done this sort of ride before. I messed up myself in 2006 and brought the wrong type of hydration…limited me to 80 miles instead of to 100 I was shooting for.
We are signed up as “Team ChristianCycling.com”
If you want to make a pledge…just add a comment below or email me: Kevin@DallasDBAs.com
