MS Century Ride

In case you didn't already know, I've been training for my first century bike ride!

I'm pretty excited for it. :)

I am doing the Bike MS ride on June 29th for the National MS Society.

I set a goal to raise $600, and my work is contributing $250 towards that goal.

I have been training pretty hard, and I am feeling really good about the upcoming event.

If you would be interested in donating, please go to this link.

Click the blue "donate" button, then search by participant for my name, "Robby Spratt".

Once my name comes up, you will be able to click "donate now".

I sure would appreciate your support, and it will go towards a very good cause.

Thanks! :)

Emigration Canyon

Saturday I went on a bike adventure!

I rode from my house to the summit of Emigration canyon.

Round trip it was 50 miles. Well...49.5, but that's close enough, right?

The funny thing about this adventure was that I didn't plan on riding Emigration canyon at all.

Originally I was just going to go for a nice 40 mile ride to the zoo and back. (I'm training for a century ride at the end of the month.)

When I got to the zoo, I felt so good, that I decided to ride up to Ruth's diner. (Favorite restaurant, by the way.)

Then when I got to Ruth's, I felt so good, that I decided to go a little farther, and see what was ahead.

After going a little farther, I figured I would keep going until I got to a really hard steep hill.

I never really came to any steep hills, so at some point I just decided that since I had come this far, I might as well go the rest of the way to the summit.

I'm glad I did! It was spectacular!

The problem with bike adventures is that I don't get many photos...because I am busy...biking.

Here are the photos I did get though.
