Welcome!

Thank you in advance for any support you can offer for this fundraiser for the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
http://www.challengedathletes.org
Please contribute any amount you can, big or small, to help exceed my modest fundraising goal of $1,000. (There's nothing wrong with exceeding it by 5X!) Your contributions are fully tax deductible since the CAF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit [Tax ID 33-0739596] charitable organization helping physically challenged athletes find acceptance and respect at the same level as able-bodied athletes. 

I hope this "Belgian Waffle Ride" journey I take on April 15, 2018 will inspire people much younger & stronger than than me go outside their comfort zone in the name of fitness, adventure, and charity. I haven't done much off-road cycling since I almost killed myself back in 2009. The Belgian Waffle Ride has become a venerable race in recent years, with many  pro cyclists participating. I'm doing the short "Wafer" version, and I'm not so much "racing" it as I am trying to finish it as an amateur entering the 60+ Masters category...if there is one! Even the Wafer has its challenges...

  • 109 km (68 miles) of road/dirt/gravel/sand/ugly trails
  • 1,981 vertical meters (6,500 feet) of climbing, including multiple categorized climbs
  • Foot bridge & water crossings
  • Sprint/KOM/MTB segments
  • Fortunately...some feed zones!

I've never done this event before but I've heard from many cyclists in San Diego that it's very challenging and very fun. I better get out there and start training. Wish me luck!

Love & hugs,
Dan
