PEDAL & SWING - Gotta Cure That Thing
We (Rosi and Perry) are a husband-wife, bicycling-dancing duo, who created Pedal & Swing to fundraise for the MS Society in honor of Erik (our son), and and for the ALS Association in honor of Eleanor (a "dance pal") and Carolyn (a neighbor), and to ultimately fund cures for these diseases (see Pedal & Swing website at: www.GottaCureThatThing.org).
In 2016 we embarked on a 3,000-mile, 30-day journey across the US, with Perry pedaling his bicycle, Rosi driving the support vehicle, and both of us dancing with whomever we could along the way. In 2017, we embarked on a 1,650-mile, 16.5-day journey around our home state of New Mexico. On day 8 of our journey we attended a fundraising dance in Ruidoso (thanks to the Ruidoso Dancers!), and at the conclusion of our journey, we put together a Pedal & Swing fundraising dance and silent auction in Albuquerque. In 2018 we participated in the Bike MS: Tour los Pueblos by riding 98 miles together on Day 1, on our tandem bicycle, and then providing "recovery dances" to other bicyclists on Day 2.
PEDAL & SWING 2019
To facilitate donations to the National MS Society, we (Rosi & Perry) will ride our tandem bicycle again in the Bike MS: Pedal los Pueblos 2019, August 24 - 25, provide "recovery dances" for event participants, and provide other options to facilitate donations.
To prepare ourselves for the 2019 Bike MS: Pedal los Pueblos event, we will complete an unsupported, 7-day, 271-mile bicycle TOUR on our tandem bicycle in NE Oregon, thru the towns of Mitchell, Spray, Lone Pine, and John Day, in mid-May, 2019.
