No green beer for me tomorrow as I’ll be taking part in the 4th Annual Miracle Limbs Courage in Motion Benefit Bike Ride. Miracle Limbs is the vision of Bob Ayres, an above the knee amputee, whose organization provides support to amputees so that they may more easily navigate the physical, psychological and financial hurdles that accompany the experience of losing a limb.
A few hundred riders are expected to participate in a wide variety of rides ranging from a 2 mile family fun ride to a metric century down my favorite cycling avenues of Naples, Estero and Fort Myers, followed by a whole host of activities at North Collier Regional Park as well as some highly rated meals from local restaurants.
The weather forecast looks nearly perfect, so it should be an extremely fun event… I wonder if I should dye my gatorade green for the day.
Happy St. Patrick’s day to all. May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, and may good luck pursue you each morning and night.
