The LIVESTRONG Challenge: 2008 Dates Are Set

Originally uploaded by sipclip&go

So, I got my notification of the 2008 LIVESTRONG Challenge Dates.

Registration opens in January, so save the dates:

Portland, OR           June 29
Bay Area, CA          July 13
Philadelphia, PA     August 24
Austin, TX               October 25-26

I guess the Texas one is so big, they need two days. This makes sense since Lance is REALLY big in Austin.

I’ve done the Philly ride the last two years. In 2007, Lance spoke, twice, and waved at me (and the other riders) from his bike as he sped past us at about 35 mph. That was quite a thrill.

It remains to be seen whether I’ll do this ride again. The cause is an excellent one and the feeling at the ride is one of complete community, hope, and support. It’s a terrific combination of a worthwhile cause and cycling. Plus, they have lots of great gear there–it’s a cyclist’s dream party.  Check out the LIVESTRONG site, it’s worth the entry fee and fund-raising efforts.–Karen

    You should do it again in 2008 for sure!

    Hey Scott, Cyclist Combating Cancer? I think I rode part way with one of your team mates last year!! I forget his name, but he was a chiropractor, and from NH. Do you know him?

    Anyway–you guys are terrific. Just the inspiration I need to do this again 🙂 –Karen

  3. Scott says :

    Sorry for the delayed response, Karen. Yes, his name is Josh, and we’ve ridden together a few times in the New Hampshire seacoast area, as well as in the LIVESTRONG Challenge. CCC will definitely be back in Philly come August. Hope to see you there!
