    The annual SMART Ride to Key West, Florida is January 8-9 (link below). Nearly 400 bicyclists pedaled 165 miles over 2 days last year, and we raised $600k for HIV/AIDS agencies in the state of Florida.

    I can't ride this year myself, as I did last, because I didn't have any training time, due to my partner's medical emergency, of which many of you read here. But as a founder of the SMART Ride 6 years ago, he's on the planning committee and going down in a "sweep vehicle" for bicyclists who need help along the way, with me watching over him from our own car, designated a support vehicle.

    We leave Monday, Jan 4 to stay at the starting site south of Miami, to set it up, and do registration beginning on Thursday, Jan 7. We arrive with the riders at Key West on Saturday, Jan 9, and then will stay until Tuesday or Wednesday the 13th, at a gay guest house, our little treat to ourselves, as we did last year. We'll have my iPhone and his MacBook, so we'll be posting reports here.

    So are any RJers pedaling down that I don't know about? If so, please email me here, and we'll meet, likely when I'm doing rider registration on the 7th. And then if you stay in Key West, we can all do something, like dinner or drinks.

    Oh man, I wish I could. I take my last two license tests on the 8th, or I'd be there.
