The Miller Lite Ride to benefit the United Performing Arts Fund (UPAF) was a huge success. My son, Chris, came home from college for the weekend and we did the 50-mile ride together.
We woke up early in the morning and got ready. I had loaded our bikes on to the bike rack the night before. We left our house at about 6:10 am and parked in the Third Ward. We rode to the starting line on Water Street just outside of the Performing Arts Center. Vendors were giving away free water and coffee and free samples of energy bars. I had a cup of Alterra Coffee, and we both drank water and ate an energy bar.
