    Hey everyone. If you haven't heard about the MS 150 you should really check it out at www.MS150.org. If you can make it down to Houston to ride, great, if not you can still help out by sponsoring me! If you would like to do so, please go to

    http://www.ms150.org/MS150/donate/donate.cfm?id=107497

    It is all benefiting Multiple Sclerosis Research. Any amount is appreciated!!
    Thanks,
    Sam

    Katy. I only live about 5 miles from the mall, so that seems like the logical choice. We've got a team from work. Lennar Homes. NOt sure how many we have though. By the way, does Bike Barn rent road bikes. I've only got a mountain bike and 4 inches of travel is a bit much for the road...

    Check with West End Cycles, they rent bikes, but I'm not sure what they charge.

    I'm riding on TeamBP and this will be my 3rd year. It's a great ride for a great cause. I always start from Tully Stadium so you get a full Century for the first day. The 2nd day is around 80 miles.

    This year is the 20th aniversary year. When it first started 20 years ago they had less than 250 riders. The last several years have been over 10,000 and with this year's ride there expecting between 12-13K riders. It ends at the Texas State Capitol building this year.

    If you want to donate to help fight MS you can go to my link also:

    Thanks,
    David

    Mayor White will be riding the first part of the ride with us, and someone .. Gov. Perry maybe? Will ride the last part. Ending on the Capitol Building steps is going to be great.

    I'm riding also, i have a thread going on in the nutrtion section trying to figure this thing out. I have had several responses might be able to help ya'll out.

    I'm riding out of Rhodes and my team is the ABS Screamin Eagles. We are smaller but we have about 50 riders I'm told. I am looking forward to day 2 so I can do the hill out of BAstrop and get the speed on the other side. I hope to hit between 55 -60m going down.:D
