9-year-old riding 150 miles at 90% of his Fundraising Goal

Isaiah rides Open Streets at mile 95 (of 105 in his 2011 fundraising ride).

Isaiah is riding 150 miles to get to Open Streets.  He's doing that a a fundraiser for the Minneapolis Bicycle Coalition (who puts on Open Streets).  As of my latest update, Isaiah has pledges for about $900 of the $1,000 he's aiming for.  I'm trusting that you and our other readers will help put him over the top by pledging through this webform.

And I'm personally asking people I know to pitch in.  Like my parents - they're from Austin, MN, but they come up to ride around Minneapolis with me a couple times a year.  They want a bike-welcoming Minneapolis to rie around, and also to keep me safe.

In case you're just meeting Isaiah now, Isaiah asked for help planning his route on the blog several weeks ago, and gave us a route and fundraising update a couple weeks ago.

Isaiah loved Open Streets last year, so he's front-loading his miles this year to make it back in time to enjoy the festivities.  While he's there, he'll tell us how far he rode, how much money he raised, and his ride adventures.

Come hear his report, meet him and give him a big, "Thank You!" at 3:00 p.m. at Tiger Sushi (just north of the Greenway bridge). Or join earlier thank you at 1:00 p.m. at Twin Town (34th & Lyndale).

Isaiah and his dad head out tomorrow, Thursday, June 7th and will finish up at Open Streets.  If you can, please make a donation at this webpage - whatever you can afford - to Isaiah to put him over the top.  It only takes another $.67 a mile to get him to his goal!  (Or four $25 donations.)
