End Bike Route.....for 2012

The bike trips for 2012 have come to an end!

Sunday was the last riding day of this segment.
Glenn rode 51.89 miles from Providence to Boston.
His riding time was 4:02 minutes with 2620 ft. of ascent.
He expended 2553 calories which were quickly replaced
at Wagamama at Faneuil Hall!  We departed from
Boston after lunch and headed south to CT where
we spent Sunday night.   Monday morning we continued our drive 
south to visit a childhood friend, Jackie Gindoff Aufseeser, in Wayside, NJ.  

Jackie and Lynn
So much history in this friendship!

Jackie and Glenn

After a quick visit to check on Glenn's dad in NJ, we headed back to Maryland to spend
Yom Kippur with Jill, Shahak, Benji and Evan. Wishing an easy fast to those who celebrate!

Back to the Real World
Happy to be back to bus stop duty with Benji this AM!

Just plain "PA" here in Maryland.
Glenn "the machine" Hirsch is resting his bike for a few days!

Wrapping up

The trivia question the other day asked what the most common
street name in the US is.  The winner, Natalie Nicholson,
knew that it is 2nd street/avenue.  Thanks to everyone who played along!

The total number of miles for this segment of the ride is 385.1!

We are very excited to share the news that Uncle Glenn's Ride 2012
including the May ride and this recent ride has raised $2576.00
for I Care I Cure thanks to the generosity of so many of our
friends and family members.  We hope to add a few more dollars to
that total at our Welcome Home Uncle Glenn Event in Atlanta
on Tuesday, October 2 at the Sweet Tomatoes on
Peachtree-Dunwoody Road near Perimeter Mall.

If you can join us, just print this flyer and bring it with you.  
If you can't print from here, let me know and I will email the original flyer to you!
Order dinner and a drink and Sweet Tomatoes will donate 20% of your
total bill to I Care I Cure!   Such an easy way to make a donation!
We'll be there from 5:30 to 7:30 to greet you.

Thanks so much for your support!   We appreciate it more than we can say!
There may be a blog or two in the next few weeks but I will be back daily
next August when we begin the final leg of I Care I Cure I Cycle on
the East Coast Greenway when we journey from Boston to
Calais, Maine at the Canadian Border.
We've come a LONG way from Key West, Florida!
