Insights on Travel from Costa Rica Expeditions’ Founder Michael Kaye and his Expert Friends.

Join us for the Oct. 2, 2011 MS New York City Bike Ride.

In January I published post asking for teammates in this years New York City Multiple Sclerosis Bike Ride.

Last October Yolanda and I rode in it for the first time. We had great ride, met some fun people, and along the way helped a good cause.

This year we formed the Vacation Time is Precious team.  So far we have two teammates.  Cheryl Snider of Trip of a Lifetime fame.  Our good friend and follow ProParques board member, the Godfather of Costa Rica gourmet coffee, Steve Aronson has promised to sign up shortly.

The ride is a week from this coming Sunday and there is still time to join.

We will be doing the 30-mile ride around Manhattan.  Fifty and a hundred mile rides are available for the young and strong.  We’ll find someplace to come together after the ride and get to know each other.  The minimum donation is $150 a person.  Non-bikers can become virtual participants and join the party afterwards.

Here’s what you have to join:

Click on Join Team (which is in the black bar just below the 4th paragraph in the middle of the page) and fill out the form.  Where it asks for fund raising goal the minimum is $150 and you have to fork up the $150 or get other people to do so.  Then just follow the directions.
