Lori and I thank all of  you of your support and orders . It is going to be great riding with all of you

Here is a little thought from Lori posted to Facebook yesterday as she struggled on a 30 mile climb yesterday

From Lori Kofman;


"It was fitting to be climbing Mt. Lemmon, Tucson on Valentine's Day, first because I was riding with daughter @Fudge Kofman (#1 female love of my life) and second, because I was wearing my Erace Cancer kit, riding for kids fighting for their lives...Man, I love kids! A torturous climb, it was appropriate to be suffering out there thinking of the kids behind my family's cause; when I wanted to abort my mission to conquer the mountain, I was urged onward. What I was doing was nothing compared to what kids with cancer face every day of their precious lives. To that point, anyone can support these kids; even those that do not ride a bike. By buying an Erace Cancer jersey, you are giving directly to a meaningful charity, with the added benefit of getting a jersey (not just a piece of paper in a tax receipt). Our clothing drive ends this Monday (Feb.16) and remember that when you wear this jersey, you are instrumental in shaping change for the kids @ Camp OOchigeas.

"Do it Now"...







 I had a ski racing injury a week ago. Over the past week I have been unable to train/ride/workout, I can barely ride and walking on stairs is tough. Today I'm on my third day of riding at about 20% of normal. When I was on the bike today It got me thinking about how we take our health and more for granted. A few weeks ago a person very close to me said , "what if today was your last day ever to train or read or write or think or whatever".. Maybe you have an accident, you get sick or worse ...He said " Go and ride today as if its your last day with your health and don't give an inch". I think i just brushed it off! So last week when i injured my knee ski racing it rendered me basically useless. This week doing some of the most basic workout stuff was painful and difficult and its frustrating and upsetting me. So im writing this because i know how people put off a work out, procrastinate on a personal goal ( any goal ). We are always thinking that tomorrow or next week or next month might be a good time to start .Hey , whats wrong with today! Well maybe next week or next month you won't be able to accomplish your personal goal because something happens and life gets in the way. Well thats the thought I had today as i was working hard to make my way back on the bike . So go do something ....because you can!

Danny Brunet’s Ride On is Pedal’s Great Bike Moment Contest Pick of the Week

by pedalmag.com
November 06, 2014 – Have you entered Pedal’s #GreatBikeMoment contest? Danny Brunet’s touching story is our pick of the week. Tell us a bike moment that inspired or changed you to win great prizes enter here.
Ride On
The moment that changed me was when I could no longer use my bike. At the age of 27, I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had to undergo chemotherapy. During those hard months, my brain felt like mush and I just couldn’t wait to ride. After my last treatment, I received the best birthday gift from my family and friends, a new mountain bike. I was eager to hit the trails.

A summer season passed by and one day after a hard effort on the trainer I felt light headed, had blurry vision and my feet were numb. The numbness spread to my lower abdomen and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. The reality is, I don’t know what my future holds and this disease could leave me in a wheel chair.
Helping kid touched by Cancer [P] Danny Brunet
My number one goal is to stay healthy for myself, my wife and our son. I have challenged myself and have made my diet and exercise a main priority. I continue to race many endurance races with my toughest challenge being the 24 Hour of Summer Solstice race where I completed nearly 300km as a solo racer. I will continue the fight to stay healthy and will continue to ride on.

    Danny, you are an inspiration to so many people. I wanted to add to your story to mention your hard work through several bike races this summer as you and your brother raised funds for Camp Ouch, a camp for children with cancer. You and your brother signed on If I’m not mistaken, you raised $8,000+ which helped to send kids with cancer to camp. How remarkable! Keep up the good work.
