MS 150 Frisco to Fort Worth

On May 3-4 I will do another 150 mile ride in the Dallas version of the MS 150.

This is my second year to do this ride. Last year I had the privilege of riding with seven people from Legacy Church and almost 3,000 others to raise money to eliminate Multiple Sclerosis. We believe this is one of many ways we can serve others in the name of Jesus through things we do every day. Here are some pictures and thoughts from last year’s ride

A year ago we had three members who started riding in the spring and today our roster is 40 riders strong, with 15 committed to the MS 150 ride. One of our teammates is a 12 year old girl who wants to ride for her Dad who suffers from MS. So we found her an old road bike, fixed it up like new and we’re training her to be able to ride that bike 150 miles over two days come May 3rd. She’ll do it!

We ride every Sunday from Legacy Church at 4:00 p.m. if you want to join us. Not everyone is riding in the MS 150, but there for the fun and fellowship of riding with others.

Be aware that there is no favor gained by your participation or lingering disappointment if your choice is to not participate. It’s strictly voluntary and you’re doing it only because you choose to and for the reward of knowing you’ve done something good. If you have supported me before, I would appreciate that plus maybe a little more (inflation you know) this year. If you’ve not chosen to jump in before, this might be a good year to join the fun! “Fun” in knowing you’ve contributed to my misery when I’m pulling the last 10 miles in to Fort Worth with a 20 mile an hour head wind ahead of me and 150 miles under me.

If you choose not to be active here, I hope you are active elsewhere in your giving as we should all be driven to use our success to improve the world around us in some small way.
