Hello My Friends and Family !!!  Just arrived back home after another climb up Bent Mtn on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  The time is getting closed for my Colorado adventure so each of these rides is an important part of my training !!!  Although I only rode about 15 miles today ... I averaged 7.2 mph and that is up one mph from my first attempt at this climb just two weeks ago !!!  Doesn't sound like much but it IS important to keep improving !!!  I still have some concern about riding at extreme altitude of the Rockies but I hope arriving out West a couple days early will help, even just a little, with acclimating and learning to breath under exertion on those long climbs !!!  Wish me luck and send me ALL the good thoughts you possibly can !!!  And if you care to , click on the "donation" link at the top of the home page and send a tax deductible gift to the MSAV address on that page !!!  Keep following this blog and before too long ... I will be riding in the ROCKIES FOR REAL !!!  Thanks for all your support !!!  Until next time ... Kenny

Welcome Back!

After last year's abrupt ending to my motorcycle journey, I am returning back to Colorado for another adventure. This time, I will be riding my hand-cranked trike on the bicycle tour of Colorado. This six day, 359 mile trek is surely to be a wonderful new adventure. I leave Roanoke on June 15th headed to Montrose, CO and begin riding on June 19th.

For the next few weeks, I will be keeping you updated on my training and how it progresses. Please follow along and email me with support, questions, or just general hellos. I appreciate all of my friends and family and your continued support and encouragement.

As always, donations can be made from this site to the MSAV at any time.

Let's get ready to ride!!!
