Had a good 47-mile ride today-from Savin Hill down Dot Ave to Milton, then thru Blue Hills to Canton, Stoughton, Avon, Holbroke, Abington, Braintree, Randolph, and back into Milton and Dot. Along the way passed a Native American Pow Wow, a huge outdoor Buddhist celebbration, and a Shriners’ Parade. Felt pretty good, too, but I am glad I have several months before Sept. 19. Glad, too, that I am able to do this–to ride, to raise a little money to support folks on the front line, and to raise awareness that HIV and AIDS-related charity work is still desperately needed.
