The ride is ridden and the funds are raised! On June 5, I rode 100 miles to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and you all helped by donating to most ever to support me in this event.
Cycling can often make one feel kind of small, like not enough, not adequate. So we work hard to feel value, to feel worthy. But, during my recent ride for No Kid Hungry, I had moments of feeling a different kind of small, in relation to the unknown grand scheme, and felt a different kind of value.
Thanks to all who supported my 107-mile ride from Sacramento to San Francisco for No Kid Hungry! I learned that it’s true what they say about riding a bike, and more important, we raised $2,182 to help get food to kids in these difficult times.
To raise funds for No Kid Hungry, I’m pledging to ride my bike over 100 miles from Sacramento’s Tower Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco on Saturday, October 10. This isn’t a formal event but a personal, self-supported initiative.
To commemorate the Yuba City Nagar Kirtan this year, we’re reviving the Sikh Century Bike Ride tomorrow, pedaling 100 miles from Stockton to Yuba City to join the celebration.
