Happy New Year from everyone at Muscles for Charity.
US Muscles volunteers start 2015 with a ‘Stinky spoke‘ courtesy of international team members, Frank and Amy Soto. Amy leads a bunch of Muscles volunteers who will manage the first ‘rest stop’ of a cycle endurance challenge, but ‘must be mad‘ Frank, Hoby and Kaito will take on the course and the weather on Saturday 17th January ! (statistically the worst weather day of the year!)
The 18 mile course, to the east of Seattle includes, ‘Up Heart Attack Hill’ on the Tolt, then Collin Creek, into the Watershed, Power Line through Farrel-McWhirter westward to the Samammish Trail, and north to Redhook. (Yes, it ends at one of the best Breweries in the Pacific Northwest. About the event, that started this fun and muddy ride years ago on the worst weather day of the year, that’s where you get the Stinky part from. For a cause, non profit – Stinky Spoke – benefits Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center which brings equine-assisted therapies to children and adults with disabilities.
