Now that the 2011 racing season has come to a close I've taken on a new challenge, but with a few less wheels than what I'm accustomed to... like two, to be exact! Cycling has become a new hobby and passion of mine, and clearly a great form of exercise for me to keep in shape for what will certainly be an exciting 2012 racing season. (details will be announced soon!)
After my first Charity Bike Ride in the Tour de Road America this year - where you all contributed to help me raise over $4000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation - I was bit with the biking bug. I have since ventured into mountain biking and now gotten my hands on a road bike. But besides the joy I derive from riding, I'm most enthusiastic about the cycling community and the vast number of 'Charity Bike Rides' that make my participation actually matter - and help make a difference.
This weekend I'm participating in the Dolphins Cycling Challenge, hosted by the Miami Dolphins NFL team and the Miami Dolphins Foundation. I hope you will support me as I ride to raise money for cancer research benefitting the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Please visit my page at http://www.ridedcc.com/dcc/page/guy-cosmo.htm to sponsor me. It's easy to do and it's for a great cause!
Once again I'd like to thank you all for your wonderful friendship and support, and for allowing me to share my adventures with you. I am very fortunate to do what I love, but more so to have all of you in my life.
Here's to helping those in need and to our never-ending fight against cancer. Please join me in the fight by making a donation today.
