Phil Gaimon’s 2020 Cookie Fondo

COVID-19 prevents an in-person event this year, but Phil and his team have put together a great virtual event, once again supporting the NoKidHungry .org  This charity does great work.

Here’s the scoop on the virtual event:

For 2020, instead of an in-person event, we’re offering the Bake Your Own Cookie Fondo Kit. Shipped directly to you with pre-measured cookie ingredients, epic cookie swag, route planning tips, nutrition, and meal plans for before and after your ride, we’ve curated everything you need to create the perfect cookie-themed riding weekend from the safety of your home kitchen and local roads.

When we opened registration in the spring we were optimistic that our date in October would be COVID-safe. Since then, we’ve looked into moving forward with reopening guidelines and social distancing. Ultimately, while local officials might allow us to hold some compromised version of the Cookie Fondo on our planned date, it wouldn’t be an experience up to our standards and more importantly it could pose a health risk to our community and riders.

In true Cookie Fondo fashion, we got creative and came up with a fun “Bake Your Own Cookie Fondo” for 2020 that we think can provide a lot of fun in a responsible way. We hope you’ll join us remotely this year, and we’ll see you in real life in 2021.

I’m riding the event because: 1) I love what Phil is doing for NoKidHungry, 2) I’m always looking for a reason to ride my bike, 3) I love cookies, and 4) I’m going to use the day to practice Hill Repeats on the DVEN 2020 KOM challenge – San Pedro Hill.

Cancer Hates a Healthy Body – So, Let's Just Do IT®

We all know Nike's famous slogan to get off the couch and do something. That slogan is especially appropriate for cancer survivors because diet and exercise are the two key factors that every cancer survivor controls.

Cancer hates a fit body because a fit body has an active immune system that works 24 x 7 to keep cancer cells from developing and spreading.

Walking

Walking is the easiest and least expensive exercise program you can find. All you need to do is to put on your most comfortable shoes – other than those cushy slippers – and head out the door.

It's always easier to walk with someone else. So, we're creating walking events where cancer survivors can meet, walk, and inspire each other.

Bicycling

It seems that every health commercial you see on television shows someone bicycling. And for good reason. Almost all of us learned to bicycle at an early age. Bicycling is easy, pretty inexpensive [we'll show you how in another post], and a great way to see some scenery as you get in those exercise minutes.

Virtually every community has a local bicycle shop that would love to connect you with a local bicycle club that will be delighted to welcome you aboard and get you started.

Health officials are encouraging staying in during the early COVID-19 period (we are writing this in early May 2020) so we are creating a weekly program of indoor cycling using the Zwift indoor cycling app.  Please check our event schedule for our weekly ride.

Stay well!
