Pedal to end Polio

Last Saturday was the inagural "Pedal to end Polio ride" put on by the North Platte Sunrise Rotary Club which Jessie is now a member of & she did the ground work for this, her first fundraising event for the club.

Was a beautiful fall day for a ride around Lake Maloney & there was a shorter distance ride for kids & those who didn't want to go the long route. I hadn't rode this route in maybe 2-3 years & kind of enjoyed being out on the skinny- tired bike riding hills & playing in traffic with others. The cost was $15/person & they had 25 show up & that got them a t-shirt, lunch & a door prize (everyone got something) so was a nice event going to a good cause, helping eradicate polio around the world.

Look for this to go down again next year if you missed it, hopefully it will grow in size & become an annual event.
