Pedaling with Pelotonia

23 Image Asset

My ride with Pelotonia on Saturday went well. The weather was mid-west perfect, the Ohio countryside was all rolling hills and cornfields—with some good 19th century architecture along the way. With almost 8,000 riders, we raised a lot of money. I’ll know the total soon.

The ride was hard, but not as hard as watching someone suffer from cancer. I thought of my mom often as I rode. I met many other men, women (and children) who had survived cancer, who are in the middle of helping a loved one – or are grieving a loss.

I resurrected last year’s Halloween costume, and made a few people laugh. This is a pic with me and Joel and Joel’s sister, Mary. For more photos, go to and search for Pelotonia pictures.

Thank you all for your generous support. For those of you who missed it and feel inspired to give, there is still time. Go to My Peloton name is Tim Barber. My fundraising ID is: TB0195
