With Bad News, there is ALWAYS GOOD!

Unbelievably,  it has nearly been a year since the Cycle for a Cause crew hit the road from Salt Lake City to Seattle, Washington. From there we began the 1600-mile, 21 day, Seattle to San Diego “Cycle for a Cause” ride.  As the 2010 summer has progressed, I (Max Kuszaj) have struggled with what type of bike ride I wanted to organize for charity to be completed this fall.  As I was weighing out options, and discussing them with new and previous ride participants, I came to a huge “bump” in the road that would result in the cancelation of any ride ideas for this fall.

It is with great regrets to announce, the Cycle for a Cause crew will not be participating in a charity ride this October due to a motorcycle accident I was involved in on August 13th.  Instead I will be focusing my time on recovering from my injuries that were resulting from my accident.

Trust me, there is no other place I would rather be than on the road with my friends laying down miles for an amazing cause. This fall will have to take a “rain check” for me personally so I can rehab my body from the broken bones.  Be sure not to worry, the Cycle for a Cause will resume this up coming 2011! Please stay tuned to our website for updates. If there is anyone interested in participating, or has ideas themselves for a ride or charity work, please contact me through email.

Please be sure to check out the photos I am posting from ski photographer Alex O’brien, who was onboard with us from San Francisco to San Diego.  He captured some amazing moments from the second half of the ride. I am sorry Alex it took me this long to put them on the site.

And finally, I want to recognize some amazing people who we have lost since we completed the 2009 ride.  Three great friends and amazing people have left our ski community and lives; Jack Hannan, CR Johnson and Arne Backstrom. We love you guys and will forever miss you…especially your smiles.  Blue skies…
