55 days till RAAM

Wanna know what the individual riders/chief are up to? View their pages!!

Hoppy Easter everyone!

The countdown is getting real. Just 55 days till Team Hope takes to the RAAM starting line in Oceanside, California but we need your help to get there. All donations are welcome in forms of gas cards, airline miles, food gift cards and others!

Saturday's Ride:
Last night Trish and I began riding and via text message found out Andre was on the hike n bike finishing his 100 mile for the day. The mission was ON. For once in my life I did not feel directionally challenged as Trish and myself FOUND not just Andre but Cassie too on Highland Road. We had a fun impromptu group ride of sorts until we went our different directions.

Trish and I made it back to the Lock 29 Peninsula, Ohio parking lot where a MTB night towpath ride was made interested when dodging toads on the TOADPATH. Get to hoppin and enjoy the semi-nice weather in Cleveland! Hoppy Riding!

This weekend was a productive one for the Cleveland crew as we spilt up and attended the Earth Day Festival Celebation at the Cleveland Metropark Zoo by Andre, Diana, and Trish. Larry and I (Sara) made our way to the Steel City to attend the Steel City Showdown where Team H2Ope set up a booth in the tailgate selling hot drinks and baked goods on an unusually cold day! Great weekend guys and thank everyone who helped to support our cause!

Night Ride on the Towpath

30 Mile mountain bike ride last night on the Towpath with Cassie Schumacher. Cassie is from Akron, Ohio and registered in the womens solo division of the 2011 Race Across America.....and my pick to win! Thanks Cassie!
It occurred to me during the ride that we need to add some night rides to our team training regiment. I also discovered that my headlights are horrible!

Team H2Ope

Ask yourself: What would YOU do for water? Please help us raise money to help the children of St. Charles School in Uganda get closer to getting a water well built! They are in serious need of this well so the children will not have to walk 3 MILES one way, 3 MIILES back, and then boil the water just to drink it! To make your tax deductible donation, go to > DONATE. Every single penny you can spare will help! Thank you!
