We are so honored tonight to have been given an award from the national office recognizing our team and all the work we’ve done to raise awareness and donations over the years. Who says being loud and proud is a bad thing? Over the past 14 years we’ve lit the roads on fire to become one of the top Friends and Family teams in our home state of Texas, our region, and now the nation. So, what’s next? The world, of course!
Our very own Ben Jernigan is departing on an epic journey. Oh sure, some people like taking vacations where they sit on a beach with a fruity drink overflowing with little umbrellas. Others like taking a road trip and getting back in touch with nature at a national park. Ben is taking it a step further (though, I am sure he’ll be dreaming of a hammock soon enough) – he’s riding across America to raise money for the National MS Society. Literally. He’s going from San Diego, CA to San Augustine, FL over the next 50 days. That’s 3,070 miles. MILES. On a bicycle. Mad props Ben, ride like hell!
Follow along with Ben’s incredible ride over on his website: http://www.cyclingben.com.
Spring Fever is here and what better way to battle it than on your bike! We hope you can take advantage of another early spring like day and get some time practice time with your bike.
Our practice ride trailblazers, Owen Marx and Robert Greenberg have drawn up a full schedule of practice rides until the big ride. Be sure to check our Events Calendar to see where we’ll be!
When we start at White Rock Lake, we meet at Big Thicket on the east side at 420 E Lawther Dr. Riders can choose their pace and distance, and for newbies it’s just under 10 miles around the lake. Please email Owen at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com if you want to join!
