Sharon and I rode the MS150 this year - somewhat of a misnomer since its actually a 182 mile course.  EY sponsored the team and we had about 20 riders in all.  We had a great time and raised a lot of money for MS (over $10,000).  The ride is a challenge, but the comaraderie and feeling of accomplishment at the finish are great.  We are looking forward to next year...and recruiting riders for the team already!

This was the "secret way out" to avoid the crowd exiting the fairgrounds in La Grange - oh well, that's part of the fun of it.
