  1. As many of U may have noted, our Arcata to Chico relay leg died because the roads were just too
    unsafe to ride. Last year Andrew Morton did this leg. I talked earlier today with him and as he
    reviewed his journal for that section, he finally began to recall how tough it really was. He did
    back to back centuries fully loaded thru over 5000 feet of climbing while often pressed against the
    white line due to interminable traffic. In fact, he said he had blocked how bad it was out of his
    mind and when forced to recall it when I was trying to get some more input he said that was the
    worst most miserable part of his ride from Portland to Santa Cruz last year. Andrew met 7 mayors for
    us last year as per http://www.bikeroute.com/NatRelayRide2002.html and check this out -- he did all
    that climbing on a recumbent. And probably one of the poorer climbing ones -- a BikeE.

    And yet in an attempt to keep Chico, a great biking town, from having a black eye over this, might
    there be someone out there who would be willing to ride a flat century for us from Chico to
    Sacramento armed with the Chico NBG Day proclamation? And we need you to be in Sacramento by
    Wednesday 7/30 at noon.

    Upon your arrival you will take part in the Sacramento NBG Day festivities where you will meet Jim
    Muellner http://www.bikeroute.com/NationalMayorsRide/JimMuellner who will have arrived from Reno and
    DeWayne Quiinn http://www.nationalbicyclegreenway.com/Events/Mayors_Ride/bios/dewayne_q uinn.php and
    his rolling birthday party that next heads to Napa NBG Day on Friday 8/1!

    If you can help us, we cannot pay expenses but will immortalize your efforts on our NBG Day pages
    that U can find at http://NationalBicycleGreenway.com/Events/Mayors_Ride/schedule.php

    I apologize for the late notice but some other roads down which we were looking came up empty... Do
    U believe in miracles ??

    I can be contacted @ [email protected]

    clinical death and reversing paralysis, *I saw God* when I answered that question.
