150 days to go...

Just five 30-day units until the ride. I'm excited. It's the same physiology as being nervous, just with a different mindset.

There is much work to be done and more than I can complete on my own.

There's outreach to cyclists via 50+ local bike shops. I think a mailer to every bike shop (a poster and cards) would help get the event on their radar. Some shops might prefer an email and PDF poster to print out: cost about $20 postage plus $20 printing. And speaking about costs, I created the Contribute page to demonstrate our transparency / accountability.

There's requesting letters of support from public officials. My goal is simply more letters than were received in 2008.

I've been working toward receiving letters of support/encouragement from some local companies which have shown great support for the cycling community. This is proving to be a long haul item. My patience is an asset here.

That's all for now.
