    Which one of you SMIB freaks did I see northbound on 4 in the Huntingtown area, about 11 am? Didn't get a good look at the bike, aluminum panniers.

    Scott, glad to hear you found ammo.:eek1

    I always start with the why? So here I go... every year I try to pay some non Catholic penance and you will need a few drinks in me for a back story. My way of giving back is participating in a charity event to raise money. Map of the route for the ride... Hats off to Scott the planner, coordinator, and ride leader. Via my SPOT - here was the route.

    Here was the charity Poster - Scott sent me.

    For the lurkers asleep at the wheel this is what the hype is all about. again this year my company is leading a Bridge Ride for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. It's a motorcycle tour through the countryside around Fredericksburg VA, designed to go over or under as many bridges as possible. The $$ come from the riders either donating or collecting pledges for each bridge (PER BRIDGE=PB) we cross. ALL proceeds go to our Company Relay for Life team. The 2013 Bridge Ride is the afternoon of Thursday 9 May, so now is the time to sign up to ride, to pledge, or to donate. I was blessed enough to have many giving riders on here who pledged some big numbers and then had others send me PMs and Posts wanting to donate.

    [​IMG]

    Yup I took my other big girl... or should I say my first girl with 2 wheels in the garage... and what is up with the snowmobile in the above picture? Another back-story.

    [​IMG]

    I left for the bridge... I didn't count this one or the others getting to the start point.

    videos go here- click pics

    We had nine bikes and 10 riders... I was in the back of the pack.

    [​IMG]

    The first hour of the ride I didn't take many pictures because I was multi tasking via blue-tooth while dodging cagers in Downtown Fredericksburg. Do you know how difficult it is to talk with your hands while on two wheels... I've been doing it for so long, only the onlookers are scared but just another day. So we did much of the below...

    [​IMG]

    And move of the below...

    [​IMG]

    Then we got to see some of the more scenic part of the outer Fredericksburg area

    [​IMG]

    More stop and turn and bridge and repeat

    [​IMG]

    As you can see we worked our way all over the city.

    [​IMG]

    Some Map routes.

    [​IMG]

    After an hour of riding we made our way to one of the many Civil War parks in the area for a stretch.

    [​IMG]

    Got a warm greeting...

    [​IMG]

    Then I was walking and talking... still on conference call but I got off some pics of the site.

    Then we stopped for the last time... and I had to show my BWDR shirt (part of the pledge :lol3)

    Ended the same way we started... with all riders and 77 bridges complete. If anyone wants the GPX file... let me know. I was graciously offered beer and pizza at Scott's place. After WAWA for some supplies... back home.

    [​IMG]

    Stats for the day was 236.6 miles.

    Entire route

    Thanks for all the support; riding with some very charitable people is very rewarding and it was an honor to represent the SMIBs on this occasion. Oh and all the riders got a sticker :D

    It takes years of practice Scotty - and it helps to have someone hunting you.

    Thank you... Honestly speaking, my coworker Scott did an awesome job... We did so many roads in the Northern Neck, Lake Anna, and FXBG area. Stopped every hour for 10 min stretch with gas. 1pm-530pm. The Gpx file does a great job breaking down many back roads and with so many bridges. Again, if anyone wants it, send me pm with email. To think we did 77 and didn't count the same one twice.

    The pains of charities :lol3 and I take full responsibility. See you both soon :kumbaya

    Video reminded me of all the riding I've done and I wish I have the patience to string it all together in such an awesome memory. And I too was so bored I have been caught eating, texting, and dancing on the bike. :D
