Batter Up!

May 30th, 2012

5-30It was another “full dance card” day on The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes as I headed into the downtown area of Cleveland, Ohio. I tried to get as many views as possible and make as many stops as possible in this crowded downtown. The Indians had a daytime game, filling the streets with tens of thousands of parents and children. Today must have been Student Appreciation Day as hundreds of school buses pulled up to drop off their charge near the ballpark. One of my favorite groups was Keith, Bill, Tim and Bill’s two children who were coming out of game. All three men are Firefighters in Mayfield, Ohio. Bill said there is some information in their station about The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes posted on the wall. I visited their station in January before I began my ride.
Today I paid many short visits to as many local organizations and landmarks as possible in the time I had. One of my stops I look forward to once a year is the renewal of my license plates for The Kindness Bus. These great women at the Shaker Heights License Bureau have supported my missions for several years. They got a stack of stickers and flyers for their “new digs.” What a great reception The Kindness Bicycle received in this friendly city.
