Mark Angle - Rider # 350

One time, many years ago, I was arrested for hijacking a school bus filled with nuns in the nude. To clarify: I was in the nude, because who would want anything to do with a busload of naked nuns? Back then, imagining me in the nude would've been the more appealing alternative. That's debatable today.

The above opening statement is a lie, but I am hoping that it got you to click over to this page from Facebook.  Sorry not sorry. Now here's the real stuff: seven years ago, I made the life-changing decision to take part in one of the most amazing fundraising events I've ever experienced. I borrowed a friend's road bike, and cycled 165 miles from Miami to Key West as part of the 9th Annual SMART Ride. While much has changed in the years since that ride, the AIDS crisis still remains. It's been a while since I've been on a bike, and even longer since I've championed a worth cause, but it's long overdue.

On Friday November 15th, and Saturday November 16th I will gleefully abandon my children to join hundreds of other individuals who will ride their bicycles or crew from Miami to Key West. This year will mark the 16th year of The SMART Ride journey. The event guarantees that every penny that I raise (with your help) will be given to AIDS Service Organizations (in my case, to BROWARD HOUSE), where it will be directed to prevention, education and direct services. A few dollars from you can change the world for someone else.

In closing, I would like to share a lesser known quote from Margaret Mead: "Never doubt that after a two day bike ride, it's very likely you won't be able to feel your genitals for about a week."
