A nice day for a ride!

This morning I got up early to bike Deb to work. It was a little chilly but sunny as we took off towards downtown. The River road was quiet at this sunday morning. Through downtown it was pleasant without all the traffic on Hennipin Av. Down Cedar trail onto Cedar Lake road al the way to Plymouth Ave and a right to the mall. It's so great to be able to ride on bikepaths most of the way. The Twin Cities are so un-American when it come to bike riding options! More than 140 miles of bike paths. My total ride ended up being 60 km in about 3 hours and I finished it of with a 30 minute run. Now I just need to get myself in the pool!
I finished a piece for the NAAM newsletter today. The Netherlands-American Association of Minnesota (NAAM) is a non-profit cultural organization providing social and educational resources to persons of Dutch origin or descent, and anyone else interested in the language, culture, history, and heritage of the Netherlands. So hopefully a good place to ask for some more help with my fundraiser.
So next on the list is a letter to the Borst kanker vereniging, Vogel vrije fietser, Tegenkracht and a couple of chambers of commerces of cities on the way down to Texas.
Ride Strong, Live Long.

    ha lieverd,
    niemand reageert op je blog...ik heb vandaag de aangepaste brief bij mij in het zieknehuis op alle afdelingen neergehamgen en al op 5 teamposten ervan erover verteld. Op mijn 'besmette' afdeling werd er direct een pot neergezet waarin cash donaties kunnen!!! elke euro is toch welkom! Morgen loop ik langs de mammapoli om daar wat op te hangen. Inderdaad wel handig om er wat flyers bij te gaan doen ivm het meenemen van je adres!
