As September approaches, our team gets excited every year about doing the MS150! There is much preperation during this ride, including transportation, food, sleeping arrangements, hotels, BEER, etc. There is also much to be considered when it comes to certain bike parts, tubes, pumps, etc. Team Hangover usually rides 100 miles down to Ocean City and 75 miles back to Woodcrest Station in Voorhees NJ. Our riders are as close as Berlin, but some of our dedicated riders come from as far as Alexandria, VA. (Yes, that's you, Crash!).

Please support our members this year on the MS150 Tour to battle Multiple Sclerosis. If you'd like to donate to our team efforts, please click here.

capemayIts time folks! That dreaded century that you have to ride before the 212 Mile Monster on June 11th. This 100 mile squiggly through New Jersey will end up at Cape May Point somewhere in the area of 2pm. Our bikes are tuned, truck is ready and most importantly, the beer is in the cooler (WITH ICE!)

Joining us is Christine (Crash) Sennott (all the way from Virginia!), "Skinny Steve" Smith, and yours truly, Rob "The Bean" Blanda.

Our ride departs at 6am Saturday morning from our Berlin Stomping grounds. We'll be greeted at the point by the lovely Nicole Albertson with the SAG and the cooler of beer! Look on facebook for pictures of the ride as we go.

GO TEAM HANGOVER!

Hey folks,
 
We’re getting closer to the LDR and we’re well on our way to having everything taken care of. This is where we are:
  • Hotel is booked.
  • Bike rack is installed on the top of the tahoe
  • Everyone is registered (except crash)
  • We have a sag driver (Marc Malamut)
Here is a quick checklist to use when packing for the LDR.
  • Tubes. Each person should have 4 tubes for their bike. If you’re riding a recumbent, you’ll need at least 3 for each wheel since the tire size is different.
  • Jersey – Please be sure to don your Team Hangover Jersey!
  • Tools – Ill have tools for common issues, but if you need something special, you’re responsible for it. (I guess this is for you, Al.)
  • Cash – You’ll need cash for the following:
    • Hotel room. We have two rooms – we’ll split everything down the middle. The rooms are supposed to be $90 each.
    • Food – This ride makes you hungry. We make plenty of stops and you’ll need cash for food at the hotel or wherever we stop.
    • Gas – I take wear and tear on my truck, so please kick in for gas. Remember, “betsy” will have a lot of miles to travel.
    • Incidentals – Please have extra cash for incidentals. Just in case something happens.
    • SAG Driver – Marc is making a big commitment to drive for us. I’d like to make sure we pay his way and maybe throw him a few bucks.
  • Clothing – Bring a bathing suit! The hotel has a pool. Also bring clothing in case of rain – windbreakers for the morning are wise also. Please also bring two pair of biking socks – you should change them in the middle of the ride.
  • BEER BEER BEER! – We don’t have a designated beer duty person. So what we can do is bring a cooler and get beer along the way. We go through a lot at the end, so Im going to ask everyone to pitch in.
  • FOOD – We need fuel during the ride. We’ll hit a wawa and get fruits, bars, sandwiches, etc. for lunch. You’ll need it.
  • ADVIL/ASPRIN – Pain happens. Bring your supply.
That’s all I can think of right now. Expect another email from me for more information. I’ve gotta go see what Neil Cherry is up to on the LDR website.
 
Get Excited!
 
Rob
Team Peon.

As I sat and sipped my beer at the local pub a nice woman ordered a tuna sub to go. She sat and listened to me talk about our donations and efforts to raise money for cancer and MS every year. She leaned over to me and said, "hey, i have MS and i really apprecitate all that you guys do to help the cause"... she then took out her checkbook and wrote me a $50 check.

I was amazed and astonished that someone, whom I've never met, would write me a check for the cause. She also didn't ask questions about our cycling team, but trusted me wholehardtedly.

Thank you Lisa for the kind donation to Team Hangover.

The money will go to our team in our efforts in raising money toward the cause for MS.

She told me to use the money for the team for anything we needed it for to ride for the cause. What a nice woman. I was touched.

Thank you Lisa!
