- May 9, 2010Philip,Sorry I missed your new bike the other day. What did you end up getting?I was planning to do a 200km brevet on June 5 in the Greenesboro area. I don't think I can do both the brevet and the Fletcher Flyer back to back. I haven't signed up for anything yet. What distance are you thinking of doing for the Fletcher Flyer?I did two 82 mile days this weekend - hoping to start putting on more miles to get ready for longer distance events. What a great weekend for cycling!David

Date: Saturday, May 8, 2010, 8:43 AMHey guys! You're still alive!
I rode by Davids house a few days ago to show off my new bike but I didn't see any sign of life so I didn't stop. I'm very doubtful for the weekend of July 4. We have something booked but I can probably throw in a couple of bucks.
Dave, what ride are you doing June 5? I was looking at maybe doing the Fletcher Flyer on the 6th.

Maybe not brilliant but at least fun. We are planning a 120 mile bike ride from Camp Lejeune, near Jacksonville, NC to Fayetteville, NC. This will take place over July 3rd and 4th of this year. We have asked for the participation of both Wounded Warrior Battalions from Ft Bragg and Lejeune to participate and so far it looks like we will have 6-10 warriors riding with us. The foundation will provide all needed support, sag, rest stops, an evening meal, and place to clean up in the evening and a place to camp. The second day will be very similar and again supported all the way to the end at the Special Operations Museun in Fayetteville where we will have a NC BBQ Extraordinaire. As a finale we are trying to get permission to ride a final

Rider donations are set at 250$ and we are in the process of setting up a web interface where we can get donations direct. I should have the flyer out by Monday evening with more details but if you are interested you can start collecting now. I would really like to see you all again and especially for this great cause. The foundation will process 100% of the donations directly to the Wounded Warrior Project and the Marine Semper Fi Fund. No overhead as we are all volunteers and the website and office space are donated.
> I did say there was a third thing....... .... oh yeah, If you are unable to ride how about a donation for my big old butt to pedal around the route? Yeah even the event coordinator has to pay. This should be a blast so join us or at least stay in touch.
