Welcome to the Bicycle Chain.   

We've had a full summer of bike events.  Here are some of the highlights:

June 11-12th was the MS150.  I have spent almost 200 days volunteering for the MS society over the last 25 years.  It is a great charity and super responsible with the funds that get donated.  3000 plus riders can get a lot of flats!

June 15-19 was the pro cycling race the Northstar Grand Prix.  We supported the Orion racing women's cycling team.  Orion is a local elite women's cycling team.  I always like going to these races and this year was even more fun being part of it.  

June 30-July 3: The last part of June I headed to Kentucky for the USA Cycling Amateur Road National Championships.  The Northstar Junior development team is one of the most successful junior teams in the country.  Last year they had 4 national champions.  One of the members (Kelly Catlin) represented the USA at the 2016 Olympics.  Her team won a silver medal.  The winning British team smashed the world record by 2 seconds!!  I am so fortunate to be associated with this group.  

July 20-24: MS Society Ride across MN (TRAM).  My family has participated in this event as either a sponsor or rider from almost its inception 25+ years ago.  I had a great time fixing bikes for a week.  It is a lot of work but super fun.
