February 4, 55 degrees with clear skies. Perfect day to sneak out of the studio for a weekday ride. February 5, 25 degrees, blizzard conditions. Bike ride today? Not so much!
Are we discouraged? Afraid that we’re going to be behind the eight ball when May comes around and the Boston Brain Tumor Ride is in our sights? Not on your life. We all know that the snow will melt, the sun will shine, and we’ll be on the road together; riders, volunteers, family, and friends, to celebrate and support the critical work that the NBTS does. Work that can only be done if we rally ourselves to the cause. Work that can only be done because of our devotion and dedication to the people in our lives who have been struck by the devastating effects that this evil disease leaves in it’s wake.
Our kickoff reception last month at the Gorse Mill Studios was an evening of connection, friendship and camaraderie. All eyes were on the prize; using the bike to motor ourselves to a cure.
Our next two pre-ride events at Farina’s Bicycle Center and Landry’s Bicycle will be equally motivating and inspiring. We hope to see you there!
May 15 will be here before we know it. Will you be there with us ready to ride? Of course you will!
Best to all,
Steven Branfman and Michael Corkin
Co-Chairs, 2016 Boston Brain Tumor Ride
