Tuesday Night Ride and Memorial Ride

Met at East View Elementary School on Highway 405. Rode the Yellow Route which is around 23 miles. A few hills but not bad. Well, I hung with the back pack for the first 18 miles, hills and all. However, the last 4 miles I was pooped, despite keeping a 19 mph pace. It was a good ride, though.

Tomorrow night, Wednesday 21 May 2008, the Owensboro Bicycle Club and friends and family of David Nuckols will hold a memorial ride in his honor. David was killed when his bike struck a dog while riding in eastern Daviess County on 30 April. This ride also will be a way to raise money for the David Nuckols Memorial Scholarship Fund. David began riding last fall as a way to stay healthy and spend time with friends and neighbors who also ride. The ride begins at Panther Creek Park at 6pm. A spaghetti dinner will be held after the ride and donations can be made to the David Nuckols Memorial Scholarship Fund to support vocational education, especially welding, at Owensboro Community & Technical College.
