Psyched for STP

I am way too excited about this bike ride. I keep flipping through the little map booklet, pedaling my fingers across to each rest stop—dragging them up THE HILL—calculating: if we leave at 5:07am and average 13.6mph and stop for ten minutes... no, 13.65 and stop for eleven... plus I am borrowing a bike and it is going to be a super bike. Superbike. Like with a cape. Way too excited.

Plus it will be nice to say goodbye to this week. Big fat car breakdown in the rain on Monday morning, dishwasher crash in the afternoon, cranky sick kid, ridiculously slow computer backup, kitten-sized ants sloshing their way into the house, and the badminton net blew down. Really, when I look at the list it's not that far from normal but a change will be welcome.

Superbike!

Have a blast! Be daring! Occasionally exceed 13.65 mph (average)!

Embarrassed to say I did not retain any earlier mentions of this ride that I might have read. What is it? Where? How far? Supported? Did I miss a chance to donate? Have fun!

We're doing the ACS Bike-a-thon this Sunday.

Bikes rule!

You are excused; I have been remiss in my online updates. Seattle to Portland, 200 lavishly supported miles. No charity, it's just for fun. So I plan to have fun!

You have fun, too!

There is a one-day option that I considered trying... that is not happening! It's a two-day event with a tent somewhere in the middle.
