|MS Tour de Shore
June 9 and 10, 2007
Year #3: It was quite a memorable one for me.
It was the first year that my sweetheart Lee rode with me. We met the previous September (2006)
at the Civil War Century, a 100-mile bike ride in the hilly part of Maryland near our homes. I was
riding that year with 3 of my MS Bike Team members Chris, Mike, and Al. Our team had gotten
separated in that ride, and I was riding solo when Lee came up alongside me at around mile 75
and said hello. We rode the last 25 miles together, ate lunch together, and then after several
emails, continued our lives together cycling together. Lee became part of our MS Bike Team for
2007 and we got married in 2008.
