Changing Gears

Wow, I’m just blogtastic tonight, huh.

I just got an email from Alice Sexton, president of WIMA USA, about Changing Gears.

Changing Gears will be a motorcycle ride in October, from San Diego to San Francisco, done by 20 breast cancer survivors. While skimming the website, I realized I’d met one of the riders, Jamie Lang, up in Anchorage. She’s a really neat lady; I can only imagine the other 19 riders are equally spunky and strong.

Anyhoo, go to the website, read about it, and think about making a donation. Statistically, one out of every seven women that you (yes, you!) know personally will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. By donating, we can help fight a disease and see 20 kickass women ride their motorcycles for a week up the CA coast. Woo!

    Hey, Carolyn – cool of you to mention Jamie. She is very excited about doing the tour. 😉
    I would just like to take a few moments here to promote breast self exams and mammograms. My cousin found a lump before Christmas – didn’t want to ruin anyone’s holidays, so didn’t go to the doctor until, what turned out to be, too late. She passed away a couple of weeks ago. Very hard on her mom, my aunt, who lost a sister to breast cancer in 1972.
    So, you all check yourselves out – then let the docs check you out – and get those mammorgrams – okay?
    There are three of my 7 mentioned just in this one comment alone – and I know the other 4, also.
    thanks, Carolyn!

    Hey, Carolyn,
    Thanks for the compliments and mentioning Changing Gears – and YES, the women in this bunch are WARRIORS! It’s going to be a super ride.
    And since we’re ending in SF, can we hook up for a night out, martini style?

    Hrm…..lemme think about that…well…..OK, I guess. 😉
    Heck yeah! Send me an email ( and we’ll assemble the troops. Are you sticking around SF for a couple days after the ride, or heading straight back to the Great White North?
