As some of you may remember, last year, the Phoenix Bikes "Raise + Ride" event fell on my birthday weekend. I set a goal to raise $3,800 and pedal 38 miles in honor of my 38th birthday. My team blew it away and raised nearly $4,500! It made my 38-year-old-self want to cry a little.

The ride that day ended up being a little over 40 miles, my longest ever. This year, I want to raise the (handle)bar. See what I did there? I haven't been riding enough to do a full 100-mile century in one day, but I want to ride 100 miles over the weekend. Can I do it. I'm not really sure, but it sure would make for a good story if I die trying. :) To add some extra excitement to this goal, I've roped James (my husband) into doing the Virginia Capital Trail out and back with me. That means we'll drive to Richmond, bike Saturday the 52 mile trail to Jamestown/Williamsburg, sleep there, and then bike another 52 miles back on Sunday. On the fundraising side, I've set a personal goal of $4000 and a team goal of $5,000 because--again--we're raising the bar from last year!

Thank you in advance for your support. You all know that I absolutely love the work we do here at Phoenix Bikes. It makes my heart so happy to see teens and tweens in our shop learning bike mechanics and a whole bunch of social and life skills along the way, earning their own bike to keep, and then getting out riding, racing and exploring!
