MS 150 Mile Charity Cycling Ride, on my unicycle!

I will be riding in the MS150 this coming weekend.

The MS150 is a two day cycling adventure from Houston to Austin that raises funds to help people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). I’ll be doing the ride (over 150 miles over two days) on my unicycle. With this journey, I’m helping the National Multiple Sclerosis Society fund research to find the cause, cure and treatment of MS. Last year, 13,000 cyclists raised $11.4 million. My goal is to raise $500, supporting the ride’s 2007 goal of $11.5 million.

Please help me support our fellow Americans by making a one-time, tax-deductible donation. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. You may make an online donation at With your support, we can make a positive impact today in the lives of 400,000 men, women and children with multiple sclerosis.



If fund-raising is against the rules, let me know and I can take this down. Thanks.

Hope you have a big coker. Good luck.

I’ll be riding the MS150 this weekend on my unicycle too. Or at least attempting to. I may end up doing the 2nd day on a bike(oh the shame… living in Houston makes hill training very difficult). Good luck with your fund raising. Are you starting the first day at Tully or Rhodes Stadium?


I believe in this cause also. Donation made.

Good luck on the ride.

Thank you all for your support. It is greatly appreciated.

Boo: I am coming from Austin and they are going to bring the coker on a transport truck. They say they only take the truck to Tully, although I would like to leave from Rhodes. I will do my best to get over to Rhodes tomorrow. Hope to see you there!

I think Tom Blackwood does something like this, if not this exact ride.

thats really awesome, best of luck to you. people with ms could use the help.

I do the Washington state version of the MS-150 (now the MS Bike Tour since it has several mileage options) every September, and will be doing it again this year. It’s a blast for a great cause.

The MS Society does great work, and you’ll have a fun, challenging ride. I’m heading to your page right now to make a donation.


Eric, I ended up starting at some gas station right near the stadium just to avoid any backups at the gate, but I heard you weren’t too far back throughout the day. I did run into AJ more than a few times over the weekend. He makes it look so easy, it’s crazy.


I got pics of AJ and Bob22b at the finish line:

here they are…

Boo radley, it would be good to ride with you sometime. I here you are going to sign up for the Tour De Cure which I’m doing along with AJ and JerryGruss and a bunch of bike riding friends.


Congratulations on making the ride! You did good work for a great cause. Hopefully you had fun in the bargain.

How about a little ride recap? :slight_smile:

Great pictures. I saw AJ come in but didn’t get any shots of it.

I’m thinking about signing up for the Tour de Cure. Check your PMs.
