A dear friend of mine, Michele Bono, past away battling cancer for several years.
Michele was a cyclist at heart, she was a National Champion and the only athlete from Hawaii that ever won a medal on the Track.
The last couple of month before she past away, we could find her in Houston, trying to recover from Chemotherapy at the Aishel House. I often talked to her and she bragged about that this was the best place to recover.
In honor of Michele I am planning of having an annual event, the Grand Fondo Michele Bono, proceeds for this event will go directly to the Aishel House.
Please join me and my riding partner Franz for a couple of miles on our two day, 450 mile journey,scouting trip, riding complete around the island.
Start will be on Saturday June 26th at 5.30am at the Old Airport Playground riding north over the Kohala Mountains into Hilo. The second part will be on Sunday leaving Hilo riding south back into Kona.
