Another Sad Loss

The Biking Life family mourns the death of Ride for Kids co-founder Mike Traynor. The Ride For Kids events are the main funding source for The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. This is a foundation that was started by and is supported by motorcyclists.
Starting with a single ride in Atlanta in 1984, the Ride For Kids has expanded to 39 events across the country in 2009. Due in a large part to the dedication of Mike and Dianne Traynor, over $50 million has been raised for research and family support for children with brain tumors.
The St Louis area Ride for Kids is this Sunday Sept 20. The ride starts and ends at St Charles Community College. Registration is 8:00 - 9:45 AM with the ride starting at 10:00. Please come out and support the the ride in memory of Mike Traynor. More information may be found on the web site for the foundation.

Eight Years Ago

Eight years ago I was sitting in a friends living room drinking coffee and watching tv. A news flash came on and showed the first of the twin towers engulfed in smoke and fire. Many thought this was a tragic accident. Minutes later they showed another plane flying into the second tower, right then people knew this was no accident, we were under attack. Later we found out that at least two more planes were involved one crashed into the Pentagon and the other crashed in a field in Pennsylvania due to the courageous actions of its passengers. Today I ask that you take a moment out of your busy day and remember the innocent victims in planes and in the towers and the heroes in the police and fire departments that risked and gave their lives in aiding others.
