Still ahead are my two final rides as part of my Summer of Cycling - the American Diabetes Association ride and my 22nd MS150 City to Shore ride. As I begin back to work after my two month sabbatical I am eager to take on the rest of 2013 with my teams at Cooper & BedBug Central. They have been so supportive of my effort this summer and made me proud every day I was on the road, flawlessly carrying on business as usual.”
