In Brocton, NY, this morning a courteous driver allowed me to pass before she made a right turn. This is unusual as most drivers try to take the turn before the cyclist gets to the corner and many times the cyclist needs to brake. We both ended up in the gas station store a few minutes later, and I thanked her for her courtesy. Tina said she is also a cyclist so she understands. When I told her I was riding for MS, she said this part of New York state has the highest MS rate in the country. She also made a donation on the spot and will tell her friends who are living with MS I'm riding for them. Thanks Tina!
A little later this morning in Spring Creek, NY while I was refueling in the SAG vehicle, Ivar Lupkin and his dad, Igor came by to meet us after reading the sign on the back of the car. They also were very supportive and then Dave Notaro, from the bank also stopped by. They all made donations to the MS Society, in support of my efforts. Igor who was an opera singer in his younger days sang Carmen for us on the sidewalk. Ivar, congratulations on celebrating your 25th wedding anniversary. Thank you Igor, Ivar, and Dave!
My colleague from Buffalo,Vince Connors, reached out to meet us but I was moving too far, too fast. I had already blew past Buffalo and was heading east at a good clip. Sorry I missed you Vince, but thanks for reaching out.
