Lou Bresee and I showed up at the cycling event for the Vermont Senior Games. We rode hard and brought home some medals. Lou rode a little faster than I did, but since he is over 75, we were in different classes.

This is another step in my recovery. I figured that if I wanted to race bicycles again, this was the perfect venue. It was a lovely sunny day and the temperature made it delightful.
Gary Eley sent this photo of me riding one of the time trials.
I have been aiming to ride the Harpoon Point to Point Century as a touchstone in my recovery from my heart attack back before Christmas, 2014.
On August 8, 2015, I rode with Los Saguaros Rápidos, Bob Schermer's fundraising team for the Vermont Foodbank. Bob has done this ride eight times. His son-in-law Jason, has done every ride save the first. And Christian Nielsen has ridden every year that I have, and he is a top fundraiser, with the highest number of donors.
Thanks to all my generous supporters. You can feel good about supporting the Vermont Foodbank and the thousands of people it feeds each year.
