Hello friends and family,
I signed up to ride 50+ miles into Western Massachusetts wilderness, up roughly 6000 feet for this, https://www.bikereg.com/massochistah, and I need your help. This is my first ever gravel bicycling event, and I haven't ridden more than 25 miles since last summer. I really want to chicken out and do the shorter 30-mile course instead.
If I get 150 dollars or more donated to Big Sister Association of Greater Boston, it will give me the needed motivation to get through the entire Hurty (50+ miles) section of the course.
Full disclosure, the money that goes Big Sister of Greater Boston directly supports mentoring programs to more than 2700 school aged girls, annually, across the greater Boston area, maintaining and improving confidence, emotional and social skills, and supporting girls to become the best versions of whoever they want to be. I also work there.
