Motel Rooms Booked For Santa Fe Century

NMTS President Gordon Pegue has booked five (5) two-person rooms at the Lamplighter Inn in Santa Fe for the night of Saturday, May 16th, 2015. If you are interested in sharing one of the rooms and riding in the Santa Fe Century, you MUST contact Gordon for more details at president@nmts.org. The plan is to drive up to SF on Saturday afternoon, check in, go carb load for supper, sleep, check out on Sunday morning and go ride the Century! An attempt will be made to have one room held open for post-ride showers and clothes changing but this, so far, is not guaranteed... So far, the room assignments are Dee F. & Gordon, John S. & Jim F., Barb & Greg T., Patrick R. & Barry D. leaving one open room for two more folks. Contact Gordon ASAP to reserve your spot!

Some sad news to report.
Don, who was 61 years old and one of the riders on the "Hearts Across America Ride" passed away on Saturday morning peacefully in his sleep. He was one of the riders that rode with us on the 17th of April Friday ride. They had just completed a segment from Seynour to Jackboro Texas in terrible rainy conditions. Don went to bed normally and was discovered the next morning.

If only we would all be so lucky that when our time is up that we spend our last day doing something we love, without a care in the world, and slip quietly away in our sleep. Live every day like it might be your last.
