Amazing Ride for Alzheimer’s | Cowboy adventure underway in Cody, WY

August 22, 2023 – Cody, WY – The Spin and Marty segments in Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club should have been pushed to the top of the show in my opinion. I remember racing home from grade school to get my cowboy fix and loving every adventure as the boys swung up on horseback and explored “The Hermit on Thunder Lake” or …other such epic goings on around the Triple R Ranch.

Shooting my first toy gun, in the house, with my eyes closed while wearing my threatening patterned pants, saddle shoes, and intimidating barrette.

My dad fed my 5-year-old cowboy fascination by arming me with toy pistols and rolls of red caps.

In tribute, I’m starting the Amazing Ride for Alzheimer’s this year in Cody, WY, and setting out on a dusty trail full of wild rodeos, bow-legged cowpokes, jingling spurs, and Wild Bill history.

Saddle up and come along as I pedal Cody, WY to Wisconsin all while raising awareness for music and exercise programs at Cedar Community in West Bend.

A couple of nuggets:

There’s plenty of local flavor when looking for a place to bed down for the night, including The Bear Tooth Hotel or the famous WigWam Motel.

I opted for the KOA campground which was about 3 minutes from the Cody Yellowstone Airport.

The KOA came in handy as storms with strong lightning chased me across the range.

Can’t wait for some Wild Bill Cody history.
