    OK, just buzzed my whole head to a stubble, ready to leave tomorrow for The SMART Ride to raise money for 6 HIV/AIDS non-profit agencies in Florida. Gotta keep my head cool under my mandatory bicycle helmet. LOL!

    The Ride leaves at dawn Friday morning, but I'll be doing rider registration Thursday. We do 100 miles the first day, stay overnight at Marathon Key/Hawks Cay, then complete the 65 miles into Key West on Saturday for a big ceremony. Here's the web site that tells the story:

    http://thesmartride.org/3/

    Not too late to make a contribution of any amount, as a few RJers have already done. Thanks guys!

    If you want to make a contribution in my name (I receive none of the money myself, 100% goes directly to the AIDS agencies), click on "Pledge" and enter rider # 242, Bob, and choose any amount you wish.

    I'll be back home late Tuesday next week, will tell you how it went. Plus soon afterwards that web site above will be updated with 2008 Ride pics. I'll link those of me to RJ messages.

    Thanks again for your support of HIV/AIDS agencies in Florida!

    Thank you! I'm going to hang my blue disabled car parking permit off my bike, to make the point that I'm handicapped. Not to mention I'm one of the oldest riders, possibly THE oldest this year.

    Plus I'll have some mementos of my late partner with me, who died of AIDS. A lot of us carry something along of a person who died of AIDS, and dedicate our ride to him or her.
