Who's Pete, you may ask? Well, he's Pete Zeidner, and for almost 20 years now he's been working to raise money for Cerebral Palsy research and treatment through his cycling journeys around the state. Pete, who has CP himself, first biked the entire perimeter of Ohio to raise attention and funds for the cause. Now, aside from his own cycling endeavors, he and his brother Chris run two bike rides to raise money for CP in Kent and Columbus.
The Columbus ride this year is on August 18th and starts at Hilliard Middle School. There are routes of anywhere from 7 miles up to the famous 100 mile rides, and they all feature full support from a staff of dedicated cyclists and friends who are there to make the day a great time.
My wife and I have been involved with Pedal With Pete for four years now and it's always a great time. This year I hope to actually ride in it and not just do registrations... :)
