Preparing for the 2011 Ride

Posted by vohnjec on June 8, 2011

We’re about 2 weeks away from the 2011 Pedaling4Paws ride.

Since the last ride completed, we’ve been working (albeit certainly not non-stop) on improving the Pedaling4Paws ride. At this point, we’ve created collateral, donation jars, materials that are unique to each SPCA/Shelter we’re visiting and generally speaking, we’ve talked up the ride.

In the last 2 weeks before our departure, we’re finalizing the schedule and which shelters / SPCAs we’ll visit (and when). We’ve made arrangements for lodging – with great thanks to the Country Inn & Suites in Lehighton and to The Vacation Inn in Union Dale! We have secured our support vehicle (through Stillman Volvo and Ed Stillman, who will also ride with us the first full day). We’ve reached out to cycling clubs along the way (though we still don’t have final numbers of riders) and we’ve updated the routing for each day of the ride (thanks, Gary!)

Technically, we still have some things to complete, including this blog area. We wanted to keep the history of 2009 and 2010 while ensuring the most recent posts are what you see. Our intention is to once again blog every 2 hours (approximately) and to upload as many photos as we can. We want those of you who cannot ride with us (or who can only ride a portion) to be with us in spirit all the way. We hope the blog will help!!

It’s going to be a great ride for a great cause, so join us, donate to your favorite SPCA/shelter (and let them know its on behalf of Pedaling4Paws) and have fun!
