MS150 plans

No, I am not riding in the MS150 in June. I am however going to be a volunteer helping out with intersection safety. I get to sit at a bunch of intersections during the ride and help the riders watch for traffic. Once they have all cleared an intersection, I hop in my Bug and drive ahead of the riders to the next assigned intersection.

If you are not aware of what the MS150 is, it is an annual fundraiser for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. The bicyclists ride from Duluth to Hinckley the first day and from Hinckley to Blaine the second day. They cover about 150 miles during that run, hence the name MS150. My sister will be one of the riders. You can donate to the MS Society and help her reach her pledge goal at her website.
