52 Miles on the Booty Loop


Go Postal and I enjoyed the 24 Hours of Booty bike ride this weekend. Lance Armstrong didn't show up, but it was amazing to see 1200 riders of all abilities out there on the course. There were a lot of very fast cyclists, a few guys on unicycles, several recumbants customized so parapalegics could pedal with their arms, and some children. We got there in time to do 17 miles before it got dark, then in two sessions on Saturday did another 35 miles. I have on my bucket list to complete a century ride (100 miles) so this may be the course for me. We will field a team next year and try to keep a rider on the course all 24 hours (which will require we buy lights) We even walked a lap so we could see the beatiful homes of this neighborhood around Queen's University. Almost half the riders had In Honor Of/In Memory Of references on their jersey...it goes to show how many lives Cancer has touched. Go Postal rode for his Mom/Dad....and I honored my Aunt Vicky!

Congrats on your ride, not surprised that Lance didn't come by, but that is just the way he does things. BUT, the thing to remember is who you are doing these rides for, again God Bless both you and Go Postal!
