Team Awesome is a Charitable Bunch [Oct. 6th, 2008|11:29 am]
The Awesomes

About 37 million Americans hang below the poverty line.
How long could you hang on?

What: Brake the Cycle of poverty bicycle ride
When: Nov. 15, 2008, 37-mile ride starts at 8 a.m., 16-mile at 8:30 a.m. and 3-mile fun ride at 10 a.m.
Where: Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park
10500 Wilderness Park Road
New Port Richey, FL 34655
Cost: $20 in advance; $25 on race day
Who: Sponsored by the Life Ministry office of the Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg
Why: To raise awareness about poverty in the United States and engage others in the work of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) and Catholic Charities to break the cycle of poverty in the U.S. Proceeds benefit the work of the CCHD and Catholic Charities’ Pinellas Hope project.
Registration/Contact: Sabrina Burton Schultz, (727) 344-1611 Ext. 325, e-mail sab@dosp.org or visit http://home.catholicweb.com/LM-DOSP/.

About 37 million Americans live below the poverty line. For a family of four, that’s an average yearly income of less than $20,000. For a single person, that’s just under $10,000. Imagine putting food on the table with that paycheck.
"It's a feeling of being powerless by yourself; of living from day to day; of being treated without respect. It's working till you hurt and always coming up short." This is what some say about living a life in poverty in this country. It could have come from any one of 37 million Americans who live that experience every day. It could have come from any one of the homeless people Catholic Charities serves at Pinellas Hope or from those who seek help with a utility payment or rent, who are one paycheck from losing it all.
Join “Brake the Cycle” on Nov. 15 for more than a bike ride, it’s a ride of faith. Be a bike-pedaling Samaritan.
The 37-mile, 16-mile and children’s 3-mile fun ride cost $20 in advance and $25 day-of.
Proceeds benefit the Catholic Campaign for Human Development and Catholic Charities, both of which work to help the poor in our backyards. We can all take part – we can pray, learn and act for change.

New rack :P [Mar. 12th, 2007|03:21 pm]
The Awesomes

I finally purchased a new Yakima rack with a high roller mount.  I ordered it yesterday but unfortunately, I won't be able to do any biking for another month or so :( 

It was $434 and change shipped from http://www.rackattack.com

I'm happy :D :D :D

I'll have to pick up a 2nd mount at a much later date.  At $155 a piece it was too expensive to get 2 right now.

Carter Road this Saturday! [Aug. 24th, 2006|02:00 pm]
The Awesomes

This Saturday, Team Awesome is going to check out a new (to us) trail--Carter Road in Lakeland. We're leaving the house at 6:30AM, so we hope to be there around 7:30-8:00AM. If you want to join us, please leave a message, so we know to look for you!

Here's a map of the trail, and here are the directions:

Take I-4 to the Polk Parkway. Get off at South Florida Ave. (exit 6) and head south approx. 4 miles to Carter Road which will be on your left by Walmart. Head east on Carter Road; Carter Road Park entrance on right 1/4 mile. From Hwy 60, head north on HWY 37 in Mulberry. Carter Road is approximately 5 miles on your right by Walmart. Park entrance 1/4 mile east.

Also, a brief description of the trail:
Trail Description Carter Road Park Trail is approximately 8 miles in length. The trail is built on old phosphate land offering something for everyone from beginners to advanced riders. The trail meanders around scenic lakes up and down ridges with numerous wildlife encounters. Watch out for the notorious 14 foot gator known to the locals as "Big Mamma".

For more information, see the Ridge Riders' Web site.

I will be updating our profile to include this map.

We'll do Croom #1 this Sunday.

This week's riding stuff... [Aug. 21st, 2006|01:05 pm]
The Awesomes

Tomorrow TA is riding Morris Bridgearound 6:30ish. We're taking a different route this time, so if you are interested, reply here so I can tell you where we're meeting, as it may be different from the regular spot.

I also plan on riding Thursday at Morris Bridge, but that army has not been assembled yet. This Sunday, we'll prolly do Croom. Saturday is a work day there, so we'll pick a different spot...some of us got our work in this past weekend.

Our weekend rides are pretty long these days. If you want to join us for one, get plenty of sleep the night before!! YOU know who I am talking about!! ;)

Rubber side down, and drop me a line if yall are up for it!

Team Awesome Ride Schedule... [Jul. 25th, 2006|10:31 am]
The Awesomes

This week:

Tonight I am going to Morris Bridge--will be there about 6:30ishPM.

For the rest of the week, I am out of town, so yalls are on yer own.

This weekend! Big stuff, ladies! BIG STUFF!!

Saturday, July 29th, at some point during the day I am going to Santos to camp out...maaaaaybe will ride before then...perhaps the Bridge on the way out? Any takers on that? I am thinking if I do Morris Bridge, it will be late to mid-morning-ish.

Sunday, July 30th is the Swamp Santos ride at 9:30AM starting from the main trail head ("Santos Trailhead" on the map). Santos is a cool park...yall should try to make it if you can. If you are interested in camping, I have room for one more tent in my space, but my tent is full. Here is a map of the trail itself, should you want to review it.

The Monday after that I am on the road again for the entire week, so once again, you are on your own. Go on, BIKE BIKE BIKE!!! I would have wanted it that way!!!

Team Awesome Ride Piccys! [Jul. 24th, 2006|09:32 am]
The Awesomes

Awesome, Awesome, and Awesome went to Alafia on Saturday. Alafia was all muddy and shitty, so after a while we said "fuck this, this ain't awesome at all! As a matter of fact, it's quite UN-Awesome!". So we went to Morris Bridge, down to another trailhead.

This made the Team Captain and Supreme Ruler pleased:

It's important to note here that Awesome got a coupla new twin mojos on Chicken Chicken. A move that would prove fateful:

Goddamn Newbies.

I cut your face!Collapse )

And Shane rides on...

All and all, a good ride. Tough, and we learned the value of a good pump (thank god I bought one on the way into Alafia!) Maybe Bok and Boc told me to buy it after all....they will learn, they will learn.
