This slow ride began in Cleveland by a friend on mine.  I expanded it here and it is also happening in:  Austin, Chicago, and Minn.  Our goal is for it to happen nationwide.  We will be holding our rides on the last Wed. of each month until the weather says so.  The first Columbus ride is next Wed. June 27th at 6pm.  I apologize for the short notice.  I was recently hit by a car (hit n run) and am finally finishing healing.  We’ll be meeting in the parking lot of Paradise Garage and we’ll hold a little meet n greet.  Paradise will also be having a few ‘Deals & Heels’ specials for us.  We’ll ride up and through Grandview and then eventually make our slow way back towards the Short North (less than 10miles).  Once we end back at the parking lot, if there are any questions or conversations about riding, fashion, food, etc. let’s have it!

If you have a facebook account, search: ‘2 Wheels & Heels’ under ‘events’ and the ‘ORANGE’  logo is for Columbus.  Join the event!

I do apologize for the delay in my blogging as I broken yet another camera.  I’ll have a new one by Friday.

Email me if you have any questions.  I hope to see some of you ladies there.

Enjoy and keep riding!

Thanks for this HOT pic, Jennifer Grimm ❤

Last year, the biggest collective of MS Advocates hopped on their bikes and rode: 30, 75, 100, and 150 miles to help fight Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  Fundraising toppled $1.4 million dollars.  This year, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society hopes this years ride is bigger and better.  The Pedal to the Point Ride will take place Aug 4-5.

Phil Keoghan, host of ‘The Amazing Race,’ and also a very big MS Advocate, will be riding a tandem with Advocate Regina Lyalls, a dedicated mother and driven professional who refuses to let her MS diagnosis define her. on the first day of the ride.  They will begin their journey with all the cyclists at Brunswick High School, 3581 Center Rd. in Brunswick, on Saturday, August 4.  They will travel 75 miles to Sandusky for the one-day ride. The majority of riders will make the return trip back to Brunswick on Sunday, August 5.

Keoghan,  a longtime supporter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and founder of No Opportunity Wasted (NOW), a philosophy dedicated to living life to the fullest, teamed up with Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp. to bring ”Together in MS,” an inspirational campaign to the MS community.

There are several route options (30, 75, 100 and 150 miles) so riders of any age, experience and ability level can register to ride.  The route is fully supported with rest stops every 8 – 12 miles, with an abundance of food and medical and mechanical support.

All riders are required to fundraise a minimum of $250 in contributions by the day of the ride and are given the option for a free ticket to Cedar Point or Soak City upon their arrival in Sandusky. Participants will receive additional prizes and special achievement awards by raising additional dollars.

Hey folks!  Just returned from a MUCH needed vaca, visiting my sister in Florida.  I’m posting the last half of my May Fashion Diary.  It was super fun to post.  I wanted to post more photos of me riding however, its very difficult trying to get the ‘best’ angle of me riding, looking ahead AND getting my whole outfit.  The best outcome was me, getting a photo of myself just prior to all my take-offs.  I’d like to thank my awesome neighbors David and Chris for taking them when they were around.  A few strangers I asked and I think my friends Greg and Andrew.  If I missed someone, I apologize.  I’d also like to thank the ‘time setting’ on my camera 🙂

Note:  Duncan Hurd, the Online Editor of my favorite magazine: Momentum Magazine will be using 12-15 of my photos of my bike project so stay tuned to that!  I’m SUPER excited about having more people see that any clothing is bike-able.

Enjoy and keep riding!
