MS Bike Tour

Anyone else riding in a MS Bike Tour this year?

This will be my 3rd year doing it. My first year I rode in the one-day, 40 mile version of it on a cheapish 24" unicycle (I think I had an air cushion though). Last year I tried for the whole two-day, 150 mile Tour (this time on a 700c) but could only manage 25 miles on the trip back, on the second day. When I finished the 75 miles on the first day, there were 4 bicyclists still behind me. That felt good. I was able to raise over a $1,000, which also felt good.

This year I’m determined to do the whole 150 miles. I’m training on average about 10-12 miles a day right now. By the time of the Tour (June 5-6) I hope to be riding 20-25 miles a day. I’d really like to get a CF seat frame before then but they’re out of stock right now, anyone know when they’ll be back? Or does anyone besides sell them? A rail adapter with one of Bedford’s new CF seatposts would be nice too, but’s cheapest rail adapter is out of stock now too.

For those that don’t know, the MS Bike Tour is the main fundraiser of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
