Christmas 1907

It's December 23, 2007, as we write this, but imagine for a moment that it's 1907. The first Wheels North is still a year and a half away, and Ray and Vic were no dount immersed in preparations for the impending holiday. If their weather was like ours today, it was chilly but not overly so. Were they thinking yet of Seattle and the great Exposition? Maybe so.

As for us in 2007, we are certainly thinking about the ride in 2009. And so are many other people. Several new riders have signed up, and the feedback we have already received has been positive and encouraging.

Watch the web site ( in the coming weeks as we update info and add new features. Among the new features: Sponsorship opportunities. Whether you're in the bicycle industry and want to help with funding or merchandise, or just want to be part of this historic event and help fight Histiocytosis, this is your chance to join us.

That's it for now. Keep checking back for more news and information!
