Training Ride #6 : I have never ridden this fast in my life. I barely kept up with the fastest speed group who are doing the Seattle to Portland ride in one day, 200 miles in 14 hours (stats on 2nd pic). The Major Taylor Project students are beasts.
Thanks to Eric @stobstar & @wahoofitnessofficial for supporting the #majortaylorproject getting underserved and diverse youth in South Seattle on bicycles! Your devices have been crucial for leading our training rides with the students.
Good day 207 miles. I think 200 mile day no worries but really it's alot. Lots to factor how many hours do you have. 200 at a good speed of 15mph is 13h20m then you need to eat, buy food/drinks, pee. It manged to come together today just need a lot more like that. #doublecentury#200miles#alldaysaregood#yeshesmad
The Double Century is done! I would like to thank everyone who had participated in this effort. Together we raised $829.39 yesterday from per mile pledges (213.9 miles x $3.88 per mile), and raised $960.65 from flat donations in the last three weeks since the ride was announced. We have come a long way and I'm very grateful for everyone's support. The AIDS/LifeCycle is only 20 days away and I still have a ways to go to make my goal. If you're thinking of joining me in this cause please check that 👨🏻💻Link in Bio😴
The Double Century is happening tomorrow. If you're interested in joining me in the fight to end AIDS by making a per mile pledge please try to let me know by the end of the day. This is going to be an adventure! For more info check that ⛅️Link in Bio☁️
Unfortunately I will be rescheduling tomorrow's fundraiser ride due to rain. I will now be doing this NEXT Saturday, May 13. I apologize for the inconvenience. However, this does mean we have another week to promote the ride. The AIDS/LifeCycle is only a month away so if you have been thinking about contributing now would be the time to do it. So far I have had many flat donations and am currently at $2.05 a mile. Do you think we can make it to $5/mile? I do! Let me know if you want to join me in the pain fest with a pledge, and as always for more info check that 🌨Link In Bio🌧
Have we mentioned there's a lot of covered bridges for the #swiftsummit200 participants to ride through? Gilkey Bridge, pictured here is a historic Linn County icon, and features a swimming hole underneath if one needs to cool off. #oregonbikeracing#doublecentury
