Eat to Ride: It all starts with good nutrition | Tina McDermott
You want to enjoy high energy and endurance during your ride! Prevent fatigue during your ride and have fresh legs for tomorrow’s ride as well. Athletes (yes motorcyclists are athletes) are sometimes confused as to what is the best food to eat before, during and after their ride. Remember that nutrition is something to live by not diet by. We want to LIVE IT, not DIE it. The focus is to learn how to eat as close to the way that Mother Nature made our food as possible. Healthy eating truly can be easy, delicious and fun. 3 Key teaching points: Fitness is necessary to ride strong and safe Motorcycling is an active sport, not a passive one Ride longer with more energy and strength with simple stretches on and off the bike.

TEAL on WHEELS: Solo Cross Country Ovarian Cancer Awareness Ride | Donna Wiegle
Donna will show a short video of her TEAL on WHEELS cross country trip and discuss the challenges and rewards of living life to the fullest. As a stage 4 ovarian cancer patient, diagnosed in 2016, Donna decided to ride solo across the United States in September 2019 to raise awareness about ovarian cancer—the 5th leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. Donna rode 6,198 miles from Coos Bay, Oregon to her home on Swan’s Island, Maine—Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean. She traveled through 19 different states and handed out over 700 ovarian cancer symptom cards to women, and men, along the way. The highlights of the trip were many—the people that she met across the country were warm and welcoming. Donna traveled with Harley-Davidson’s Touring Guide, which highlighted the motorcycle scenic routes across the country. She avoided highways as much as possible preferring to “take the road less traveled”. She studied the touring guide each night to figure out the next day’s ride—almost always a route that offered awesome riding and spectacular scenery. Her favorite destination was Stanley, Idaho, population 63, located in the Sawtooth Mountains along the Salmon River. Donna will talk about the challenges she faced on the trip. She suffered severe dehydration when she reached the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee after riding through oppressive heat across the west and through the south. But, Donna concluded that the challenges paled in comparison with the rewards of completing what she set out to accomplish.
