Bike Ride for the Multiple Sclerosis Society    Bookmark and Share
430.jpgDear Friends, Colleagues, and Previous Donors, This is a final request this year for donations to the Multiple Sclerosis Society through the MS-150 bike ride. If you are away and see this after the event, I can accept your funds and send them into M.S. until August 25, 2006.

I'll be riding 200 miles again this coming weekend (July 15 & 16) with Team AAA Michigan (a nice group that actually includes a couple of AAA employees and we get cool jerseys). This is my twelfth MS-150 in thirteen years To date, I've ridden ~2125 miles in these rides and with your generosity have sent ~$21,495 dollars to the M.S. Society.

The main thing you get for your money is the good feeling of knowing you did some good, followed by the nice benefit of a tax deduction. As a benefit to my sponsors, I send a final story of the ride report. It is a primarily fact-based account of my fun, pain, and suffering which some of my long-time donors find amusing. Unfortunately, I set a high standard on this my first year when I crashed early and rode most of the even with a big red road rash wound on my left knee. I won't promise to repeat this, but hopefully I'll deliver something amusing (a somewhat embellished sample follows this message).I'll be happy to take your pledges e-mail or via the MS Society web link below. You can also give me checks directly (made out to "The M. S. Society"). Your donations are tax deductible and go directly to the Society.

Thanks, Fred Terry

July 12, 2006. The Spanish daily El Pis dropped a bombshell in its Sunday edition. Fred Terry and and all the other riders of Team AAA Michigan have been cleared of any involvement in the Operacin Puerto doping scandal. The full team of 13 riders has been cleared to start at Davisburg, MI, on Saturday and is now expected to be a dominate force in the event. Unconfirmed sources quoted UCI President Pat McQuaid as saying, I don't know what these guys were worried about. They are so old and slow that we would not have taken action against them even if they were found guilty of doping. If I were them, I would see Dr. Fuentes and get some EPO and probably some Geritol too.The grueling 2 day MS-150 Michigan has been compared to the Tour de France for grueling hors-cat (out- of category) climbs. The final 12 miles on the return to Davisburgh has been called the Michigan equivalent of L'Alpe d'Huez. Skeptics have claimed these comparisons have all come from delusional aging professors.   [More Info]
