Harbor to the Bay Bike Ride for AIDS

For the past 2 months, my friend Tony has been training for the Harbor to the Bay Bike Ride. The ride is a one day 125 mile (yes, one hundred AND twenty-five MILES) bike ride from Boston to Provincetown on September 15th. View the map, it’s a pretty neat course.

The annual ride started in 2003 and has raised over $2,000,000 for four local HIV/AIDS organizations; Fenway Health Center, AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod, Community Research Initiative (CRI), and AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts (AAC). 100% of all rider-received pledges has gone directly to these beneficiaries.

Tony helped me find my awesome bike on Craigslist and the paths around Cambridge this summer. I’ll be cheering him on this coming Saturday!

    I should have opened this earlier–sorry. I guess the 125 mile ride is about over now.
    WOW!!! I can’t imagine anyone riding so long at one time. I hope someone can massage his legs etc etc etc. afterwards. (would he soak his legs in ice water afterwards?) I guess I’m being nosey (sp?)
    Hope he does well after the race today. Please give him everyone’s BEST WISHES!!!!!
    hugs,

      He finished in just over 8 hours, so it was late afternoon- as they started at 6:30am and had 9 pit stops, including a mandatory lunch stop. He did great! They had massage staff on hand at the end but the wait was an hour. The best thing is some stretching the next day.

    If you train for it, just about anyone can cycle long distances. I’ve been cycling the Harbor to the Bay (H2B) for 5 years. I was cycling other AIDS rides prior to that. Ride 10 was a blast! Congrats to Tony!
