On June 1st at 0900, 4 members of DLS's MS150 Bike Virginia Challenge Team met at Roosevelt Island in Rosslyn to begin the 4th of many training rides in preparation for the 150-miler from Richmond to Williamsburg ride in September.
It was a perfect day for a bike ride, with temps in the high 60s and just a small cooling breeze. Kate Marden, Bethany Zimmerman, Nasrat Sepahizada and Doug Craig set a good pace, averaging 13.2 mph over a distance of 28.4 miles. Our route, to Great Falls via the C&O Canal was in fabulous early summer green, with just the right amount of ups and downs. We rolled back into Rosslyn at 12:30, a little bit achy, but nothing we couldn't handle with a hot bath and Tiger Balm, and we are looking forward to the next ride.
Team DLS MS 150 is going to be looking for sponsorship in the coming weeks.
We have committed to raising $2500.00 to MS research. If you would like to sponsor TEAM DLS, please click on this link.
