Ride for the Animals

Ride for the Animals

My cycling mate Dietmar Gregory asked me if I’d do the “Ride for the Animals” with him. He loves his dogs and does people training for dogs at his local dog club.

By definition I’m not much on pets or other tame creatures but I thought about my friend and comrade Karin Geradts who amongst other things dedicated her life to animal rights. She was thought provoking and passionate about their rights and doing this ride is a small thing for her work and memory.

So if you knew Karin or know any animals you might want to make a small contribution to this good cause. She’d like you to.

Dietmar and me are also looking for animal cyclists to do the ride with us.
