    Help a MTB Brother out if you can
    This one will be cross posted in all the usual places

    There is a ride and benefit being put on for one of my riding buddies Sunday. He has 3 types of blood cancer that will require him to have a bone marrow transport. If you have a little extra, think about helping these folks out by sponsoring one of the riders. Donations can be made per mile of rider or as a firm amount. Thanks to any that donate

    Pedalogy: "The Kilmer Challenge Ride" benefiting The David Kilmer Cancer Fund


    David is one of my heroes Ė in a time when there donít seem to be that many candidates that hold up under scrutiny. He is 60 years old, rides hard core back country / cross country stuff, while battling cancer.

    Great place for exploring Jen. Tic Tac, not too much different than some of the WV stuff we have ridden, just drier.
