I am wondering if anyone else is doing this ride coming up in mid october. I am a new rider, my longest ride has been 30 miles and the event I signed up for is 60 miles. I need advice on training and nutrition. Please help me by sharing your story of your first charity ride.

Hi! I did my first Bike MS last Sept. I did the 150. It was crazy! I loved it. I'm on a "team" with much more experianced riders and they were so encouraging and gave me tips. Are you doing yours by yourself or with other people that you know? My story is quite diff.. I had no way to train since my bike was stolen 3 mos before the ride. I borrowed a friends giant. and I was hooked. at the end of day one I was tired, sore, excited, and proud of myself. at the end of day two I had all those emotions like an explotion and I cried as I crossed the finish line. I am looking forward to this years' ride with my Dolce!! Good luck and would love to hear how it went!

Hey bikingnurse,

It's awesome to read your success story and it makes me feel that maybe I really can do this (it feels like I'm doing something crazy.) To answer your question, I am kinda doing it on my own because one of my best friends has multiple sclerosis and it was getting worse and I felt I had to do something.
