About Michelle Shelton
I started road cycling in June/July 2014 with a group from Franklin, TN called NO RIDER LEFT BEHIND where I learned the fundamentals of road cycling and fell in love with the sport that was challenging, therapuetic and confidence building. I began training on the Natchez Trace and did my first metric century at the Clarksville Sunrise Century in August 2014 and participated in my first MS fundraising ride in October 2014 riding the Bike MS Jack and Back 150 miles/2 days.
I absolutely love road cycling and the Bike MS Jack and Back is one of the best experiences of my life. To be able to do something I love for a good cause has been a life changing experience. Bike MS and the volunteers were truly amazing! I am honored and proud to have this new exciting opportinuty to participate in the BIKE THE US FOR MS.
Since I have participated in MS sponsored bike rides I have learned so much abuot MS and all the people I know and their stories who are affected by MS.
My other interests include, dog & cat rescue, pet outreach, registered therapy dog handler and partner with my dog Sundance as a PET PARTNERS team and Reading Education Assistance Dogs (READ) team, visiting an elementary school where at risk children read to Sundance to improve reading skills and self esteem.
The ride will kick off in San Diego, CA on September 15, 2015 arriving in St. Augstine, FL November 5th 2015. In order to prepare for this adventure I will be training to increase my cycling speed, edurance, strength, skills and hardcore camping and survival skills to thrive in this type of cross country adventure!
I must also raise approximately $3,070.00 for MS before I begin this dream adventure across the US.
I am accepting donations in any amount!!! You can make a donation in your name or anyomously, and honor a friend or loved one affected by MS.
If you, a friend or loved one are afected by MS, and would like to share your stories and or pictures, I would love to hear them and/or share your stories on my blog to help fight MS and bring awareness.
Thanks for helping me help the fight against MS!
Please let me know if you want me to dedicate a day of the ride to a friend or loved one with MS!
