Dedication Ride #2 (Monica)

In keeping with the daily video blogs my coworker, Jeanette, has a sister that was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma shortly after I was. Her treatments did not go as smoothly as mine did and she has recently been diagnosed with recurrent disease. She has a tough road ahead of her and today's ride was for her.

Dedication ride #1 (Evan Redden)

Having issues getting motivated to put in the required miles and time in order to get better on the bike. My end game is to purchase a new bike (next year), get up the west side of Snicker's Gap (1000 ft high roughly and this summer) and then ride in a half-century (50 mile ride this summer). After getting some inspiration from Lance Armstrong's Daily Video blogs where he dedicates a ride to someone, I though I would do the same. My dedications aren't specific to cancer survivors or victims, but hopefully by focusing on others and using their fights/heroism/etc, I can find the motivation to make the necessary sacrifices.
