Dear Supporters,
Riders #145 and #2297 Once again, thank you for the grand pledges you have made to the Eastern NC MS150 Cycling Tour. This year thanks to last year's pledges I earned the right to wear rider number #145.

2008 was especially grand because for the first time in all of the 11 yearly rides I had as a riding partner Evelyn, my wife.

2008 has been quite hectic for our family (which even included a family wedding). There was even some question as to whether or not I was going to ride. I did register, and I did put up the MS150 web page (here is the link: 2009 MS150 PAGE however, I was just not as enthusastic about it as I've been in the past.

Well around the beginning of the summer Evelyn said, "Why don't I ride with you this year?". That did it. I got myself together and sent out the emails to raise money and Evelyn and I both rode in the MS150 this year.

We arrived in New Bern on Saturday less than an hour before the ride started on Saturday and picked up our packets, pinned on our numbers and headed over to the starting line. They had a special location for the few hundered riders who were doing the 30 mile ride and we lined up there. After the 75 milers and 100 milers took off it was our turn. We headed out of New Bern crossing under US70 down Country Club Road heading south then out into the country and looping back toward New Bern to pass over US70 and onto NC55 and back into New Bern. We arrived back at the starting point about two and a half hours after we left.

Evelyn decided not to ride on Sunday and I drove over and did the 30 mile loop again arriving back in Morehead City in time to have lunch.

So this year's rides were a bit shorter than normal but were historic none the less.
