Scenic Shore 150-Bike Ride

It is that time of year again. The sun is bright and warm, the birds are chirping, and BJ and I are training for the Scenic Shore 150 Bike Ride. What is the Scenic Shore 150 you may ask? Well it is a bike ride that raises money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. It is a 150 mile bike ride done in 2 days along the Michigan Lake shore. It is truly one of the most gratifying (although the RKC ties it!), fun, and most beautiful things BJ and I do in the summer.

This year it is taking place July 21 & 22. And I am proud to say my little brother Matt (well he is 22 so not that little) is doing it with us this year! Anyways, we start off at MATC in Mequon on the morning of the 21st and bike 75 miles up to UW-Manitawoc. Stay over night at the campus in the classrooms. Then the next morning, sore as heck, we bike another 75 miles up to Sturgeon Bay. When we get there, there is a huge cookout party and the satisfaction that we did it!

So one of the reasons why I am blogging about this ride, besides now I have something new to train for, we need to raise money for the ride. Our goal is 250 dollars. Neither BJ or I know of anyone who has had or died from Leukemia and/or Lymphoma, and hope we never will, but believe that it an extremely worthy cause and hope you do to. Plus you will have the pleasure knowing that we are torturing ourselves that weekend! If you would like to donate even 1 dollar and you have a PayPal account you can send it to If you do not have an account with PayPal you can go here and set up a free account.

Last, but not least, we would like to invite anyone who also enjoys these types of challenges to come along with us for the ride. It is a weekend you will not forget and a weekend that will test your strengths!

Thank you to everyone in advance who donates, we appreciate it!
