...This is the rest of my bike...
...all snuggled up tight in the box.
Now I'm ready to head to Italy so I can climb the Dolomites with MS Global, a weeklong ride sponsored by the Tyler Hamilton Foundation, to raise money for research and public awareness of multiple sclerosis. MS is a disease that Lisa has and that she, Sean, Aidan, and Tanner live with every day. She's one of the strongest and most gracious human beings I know, and I'm going to do my darndest to make her proud as I attack those Italian mountains.
PS My laptop's going, too, though it's not in the bike box....so as long as I can get online, I'll be posting reports and pics September 5th through the 12th. Stay tuned. Ciao!
