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 LegacyChurch 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.

Not everyone is riding in the MS 150, but there for the fun and fellowship of riding with others.…

(You'll see the end result in May, and we'll go through it starting in December.)I rode my bike to the office Monday--and back home. It was nice to say Hello to walkers and joggers, and the way I go I have no real fear of unfriendly drivers. (I forgot my computer power cord at home, and had to ride home to get it at lunch. Ended up riding 12 miles on a beautiful day.) I live only 3 miles from the church's campus. By th…
