Josh, Mike, Craig and I had a great time riding the 2011 Ride For Research in Wabeno, WI. Thank you to everyone who donated! Several folks from the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center in Madison spoke to the group before the ride thanking us. Another young lady smarter than the four of us combined stopped by to talk to us at lunch.
She explained some of the early cancer detection technology she and the group were working on as well as more humane ways to treat the disease. In her words, Chemotheropy is “barbaric”. They are working on ways to stop the disease without poisoning the patient.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know your donations seem to be going to a worthy bunch.
Fueled by the knowledge we were promoting a good cause we tore off into the beautiful forests of Nicolet. There were some slimey, root and rock filled single track trails and plenty of gravel roads. We did some steam crossings, logs, deap sand and rolling trails of black dirt. Believe it or not there were no major diggers or mechanical failures.
Thanks again for the donations!
