P4P Day Three

Posted by vohnjec on June 20, 2013

Day three has been great so far… Started with a five mile climbing section and then an eight mile descent! Man that was fun! Some nice rollers to bring us to lunch in Whitney Point, NY at mile 69 on a 127 mile day but not before we stopped at the Binghamton Humane Society where we saw some great cats and dogs waiting for their forever homes!

3 Nights to Go!

Posted by vohnjec on June 15, 2013

Just three nights to the 2013 Pedaling4Paws Ride. We have already had a very successful raffle in West Chester for the Chester County SPCA and and moving aggressively closer to the Skaneateles, NY based drawing for the Finger Lakes SPCA, so those who want tickets for that raffle had better get to one of the purchase locations this coming week!

We have numerous media appointments and many miles to ride but as always we still need support from the many P4P followers. Whether you choose to donate, to adopt, to ride or all and more, please let the shelters you help know it was Pedaling4Paws that made you do it and thank you very, very much for the support! Please leave comments on our blogs anytime you do anything related to P4P or if you like things we do. We greatly appreciate hearing and seeing that support too!!

See you on the road real soon!!

P4P Cyclists Ride for Charity

Posted by vohnjec on May 5, 2013

Some P4P aficionados (Bob Morris and Charles St. Maurice) and a newbie (Me-Cristy) and Dave Rainey (reentering the WCCC club after a short hiatus) and a nice young kid we picked up (Dan) to pull us up those crazy hills; rode today in the Cinco De Mayo Charity Bike Ride in the Kimberton area in support of adaptive cycling for handicapped people wanting to enter the great world of cycling. A great day for a great ride… 50 miles and 5000 feet of climbing or thereabouts… Enjoy these pictures from today…

P4P Training Ride 6

Posted by vohnjec on April 27, 2013

What a dream day for a 70 miles ride; temperature in the high 60s, light wind for a change, blue sky and a great group of 18 avid cyclists; needless to say that endorphins were flowing after a visit to beautiful Lancaster County and back! The group rode very well and is gelling very nicely after these excellent rides! See you all next week for #7!/Charles St-Maurice

P4P Training Ride #3

Posted by vohnjec on April 6, 2013

POST FROM CRISTY: Wow! Another GREAT training ride today! We rode to places I have never heard of! The group is getting better each week at riding together and we covered 63 miles from Chester County into Lancaster County and back again by way of Triple Fresh, represented in the pictures here. We even had to stop and wait for 2 horse and buggies to pass by! Kinda cool! Until next week, rest up and ride on friends!
