Pics From The 2012 Richardson WildRide!

BFR Gang At Lake Lavine

This past weekend, I got to participate in the 9th annual Richardson WildRide! Against Cancer benefitting the Methodist Richardson Cancer Center, home of the Lance Armstrong Shaped Beam SurgeryTM program. The ride consisted of three distances of your choice – a 16 mile, 40 mile or 64 mile route. This was my 3rd year to ride in this event. The first year, I did the 16 mile route and last year, I took on the the 40 – which seemed incredibly hard at the time.

The goal was to ride the 64 mile route this year. Unfortunately, I didn’t get enough rest the day before, so I decided to just do the 40 mile route. I did have some company this time. My friends, Jenny and her husband James rode their first WildRide! this year, which made the route a little more interesting. Overall, the ride was actually not as hard as it was last year, so perhaps I’m ready for the 64.

Here are some pics from the event. Click here to see the entire set.
