I wanted to give a huge shout out to MANY of you on this site for your most generous donations for MS research. I was able to raise over $1100 and a LOT of that came from the benevolent folks here. I wanted to post a few photos just to give you an idea of what a huge charity ride looks if you have never participated in one or have seen one in action.
I also wanted to thank Kevin again for allowing me to post the original thread. I truly appreciate that.
My gear the night before with the names of riders that I am riding for:

My daughter with the names of the folks on my team. Of course my name is the biggest:

The mayhem of the starting line:

20 mile rest stop:

77 mile rest stop:

FINALLY, at the beach in Ocean City, NJ:

Sorry if there are too many pics. I tried to use the ones that I felt best captured the moment. I also don't have any action shots, because well, that would be dangerous.
Thanks again to all the great people here. This is truly an amazing community.

Congrats and well done! :clap:
IMO, Kevin is a top notch guy for extending to you (and us!) the resources of this website to further the cause.

Also, much recognition is due to Rich at 4noggins, and Mike at BriarBlues for their generosity.

The weather was fantastic Les, I felt like I could have turned around and went back. It sure beat 2012 when it was in the 90's and humid.
