Not long ago, my wife was seriously injured in a bicycle riding accident.  When I tell the story I always clarify riding to include — bicycle.  If I only say riding accident, people assume motorcycle, and bringing the conversation back to bicycle requires more explanation on my part.  In any case, she’s much better now, finishing up physical therapy, and looking forward to her next biking adventure.  Yes, you heard me right, she’s getting back on her bike.

Laura is riding for Team World Vision in a 360 mile event starting in Santa Cruz, California and finishing in Malibu, California.  She’s named her journey, “Pedaling with a Purpose”.  She has a Team World Vision web site to collect donations for their charitable causes for any interested,  Laura’s Team Vision Website.

Team Vision noted on their main site, as riders achieve their physical goals it also helps Team Vision achieve their charitable goals.  Donations go directly to Team Vision.  Of course, these are tough times financially and we realize everyone’s financial condition is not the best.  Please don’t donate anything you do not feel comfortable to donate.

To readers at the office, notice the riding jersey — Oracle!  Next, we need to convince the sales staff at the company store to make some Java jerseys with Duke’s.


DISCLAIMER:  In case you missed it, Laura is my wife.  Yes, I am biased.  ;o)
