5 Weeks Out - Hit it Hard!

The countdown to Obliteride 2014 continues! Now’s the time to hit your training and fundraising hard!

Don’t forget 25-, 50- and 100-mile riders start and finish on SUNDAY this year and 150-mile riders start on Saturday and finish on Sunday. This is an important change we made so everyone can celebrate together at the finish line on Sunday afternoon.

Here are this week’s training and fundraising tips from our Acceleration Plan.
 

Joe’s Journey from Death’s Door to Obliteride

“Being told you have six months to live, life changes a little bit.“
 
Joe Grojean had what he called the “perfect” life. At 45, he was a happily married dad, living on Mercer Island with a job he loved. He was healthy and active, in the prime of his life. Then suddenly on December 18th, 2009 his life changed forever.

Did ya know?

We have SO many great things planned for Obliteride! We want to make sure you are aware of some important changes (see #1 and #2) and also some of the special things that make Obliteride different from all other rides.
