D213 - Finish Line

Today was the second day of the MS Pedal to the Point with riders going 150 from Sandusky to Brunswick Ohio to cross the finish line. The quote of the day was 'That last hill was a beast!', though I'm sure there were other words going through the minds of some of the riders. All in all, it was a great turn out and opportunity to raise money for the cause, find a cure for MS. The coolest part of this race is everyone is so nice and supportive of each others. I recall one racer saying 'It was tough this morning with the rain, but passing by people sitting the rain cheering us on, that made it worth it. How can you not push on?'. Now that is the truth!

If you ever get the opportunity to ride Pedal to the Point I would highly suggest riding it, or at least coming out the cheer the riders on. In the heat or rain it can be a grueling 150 miles, so a little motivation goes a long way.

Big Thanks to all the riders, families, supports, MS Staff and volunteers, none of this would have been possible without you!

Enjoy these few moments from the race.
