Pastor Mark Clingan called me tonight to announce with great humility that he completed the 184 miles with 11.000' of climbing. Randy, fighting giant saddle sores had to pack it in after "omly" 160 miles. The pain must have been unbearable to have stopped so close to the finish. The pair started the ride at 5:45am and arrived in Pittsburgh at 8:20pm. I'm surprised Mark did not do laps somewhere to get to 200 miles. Tomorrow they are going white water rafting but plan to make it for the Blue Jay ride.
Speaking of Blue Jay, the COP roving ride out of the Newark Y, this Saturday at 8:00am, I have multiple cans of orange spray paint and intend to use them to pain inspiring messages on the road.
