Pelotonia bike ride for cancer research

I am riding in the 2012 Pelotonia to raise money for the James Cancer Hospital at Ohio State University. My wife, Sherri, is a cancer survivor thanks to the excellent treatment she received at the James. I am currently planning to ride the 100 mile route although if Sherri is able to ride I will likely do the 50 mile route with her. I did the Pelotonia ride two years ago and learned my lesson about needing to train on real hills. There are no hills near my house so in May I did a group ride that hit some of the same hills Pelotonia does. For those who are curious, here is a link to the ride:

I have committed to raising $1800 so I would greatly appreciate any donations. Generous corporate sponsors are covering all the expenses so 100% of every dollar donated goes to cancer research at the James and qualifies as a charitable deduction under IRS rules. Here is a link to my page where you can donate.

Or you can go to http://pelotonia.org/ and search for rider ID DR0051.

Thank you.
