In July of 2003, Pedal-with-Pete celebrated ten years of support for cerebral palsy research. Founded by Pete Zeidner after his successful ride around Ohio in 1991 to raise money for brain research. Pedal-with-Pete was incorporated in 1993 as a 501 (c)3 organization to raise awareness and funding for research to prevent and treat those with cerebral palsy. Some milestones over the last ten years:
- On Monday, four of us checked out the GREAT NEW ROAD that route designer Dave Levy added to the longest route this year so that you folks who are obsessed with an even 100 miles will not have to do laps in the parking lot to reach your century-goal. So, the longest route will NOT be 99 miles this year, it will be 100.8! Check out this shot of the SHADED, TWISTY, SCENIC, DIVERSELY POPULATED, INTERESTING, and CYLIST'S-DREAM-of-a-new-road that you'll find on the longest route this year!2 days ago
- I just Pre-Registered for the ride/walk on Sat. Aug. 2nd, even though I'm co-chairing with Jan Schnegelsberger and will be volunteering all day! When I pre-registered through the EventBrite tool, at the end of the registration process, it helped me to use Facebook to share the event with my Facebook friends.... all to spread the word about this great cause and great day with great fun!4 days ago
At the @[89520332657:274:Pedal-with-Pete Foundation] 's Columbus event last year, check out this picture of me, volunteering (chair that year) and Dave, riding (he volunteers before and after the ride). Usually we are both riding all the time, but at this event.... I'm too busy to ride! Ha! This year's event is on SATURDAY, AUGUST 2nd, and it's at Hilliard Heritage Middle School; it has rides to suit anyone (7-mile bike-path-only route, and then 6 more routes that also use country roads, all the way up to 100 miles) and this year, we added a 2.5 mile WALK that starts from the same location. Your registration fee goes LARGELY toward Cerebral Palsy research, and additional donations are encouraged but not required... bringing hope and help to 1 million people in the USA alone who deal with CP. Pre-register or come on the day of the event to register and have a fun, meaningful day!
