The Night Before the Day of the Ride

Posted by vohnjec on June 21, 2010

Like most major events, there’s always a bunch of scrambling to do at the last minute.  In this case, there were a few last minute changes based on television, newspaper and personal schedules that we tried to accommodate. The good news – we’re all set. The Stillman Volvo XC-60 is all fueled and shiny, we awesome ground effects and enough decals to do any tour proud! Show up tomorrow at any point on our ride and you’ll see what we mean!

The packing is all done. The bikes are all ready. The route is all firmed up. The stops and visits confirmed (as much as we can confirm them) and the weather is about the only thing we know we really can’t control. In short – we’re ready…

Our departure is 8:00AM, but first we have our visit with Mayor Comitta in West Chester at 7:30AM, the Daily Local News and ABC-6 out of Philadelphia. From there we boogie out to Birdsboro where we visit the Animal Rescue League of Berks County and speak with them and the Channel 69 news crew and possibly the Reading Eagle reporter. We should be in Birdsboro around 10AM and hope to see numerous riders from the West Chester Cycling Club rolling with us for that first leg. From there, we head north towards our final destination  – Lehighton.

Visit with us tomorrow and wish us luck. The more the merrier!

At this point, I’m shutting down any updates to the website and we’re updating this blog (only). Expect updates every 2 hours or so and technology-allowing, we’ll have photos all along the way.  Track us and share your comments and donations to your favorite SPCA/Shelter.

Good evening and see you in the AM!!
