Much thanks to those who have supported my return to the Stars and Stripes Challenge. It is the first part of a two part 2012 Ride for Mike. This one has come about rather quickly and I wasn’t expecting too much. However, the support has already exceeded my expectations. You folks are awesome!
This first part endeavor is to complete as many laps of the USA Cycling Professional Road Race Championship course as I am allowed. What makes this event special to me is that it was the first ever Ride for Mike. During that first time I was going to try to do three laps. While I finished the first two laps in enough time to start my third attempt, I did not do it. Looking back it is something I regret. I have some unfinished business with this ride!
You can still give!Just make sure you choose my name, Jonathan Pait, from the drop-down list when choosing a rider to support. Once you do that, you just complete the rest of the form and submit it. It’s easy!
The ride takes place this Monday, May 28. We’ll be going out on the pro course before the professionals come out for the actual race later in the day. Come on out and cheer us along! You can learn more details at the Palmetto Peloton Project website.
I’m taking Tuesday and Wednesday off the bike to let the old hip and knees recovery a bit. Thursday and Friday I’ll put in a bit of a tougher ride and an easier spin. Saturday and Sunday I’ll spin about a bit to keep the legs loose. Then on Monday, I’ll be ready to roll!
Again, thank you to those who have shown their support!
