Freeze’s ride inspires three to join biking excursion
Inspired by cyclist David Freeze’s journey from Maine to Florida, local athletes Trudy Gale, Carol Hauss and Susan Moore participated in the Lake Norman Excursion bicycle ride in Mooresville on Saturday.
The group rode 65 miles with over 1,000 other cyclists who came out to ride for race car driver Jimmie Johnson’s foundation. Hosted by Lowe’s Corp., the women reported the ride was extremely difficult at times, covering some tough and long hills throughout Iredell and Rowan counties. However, the cyclists were rewarded at the of a hard day’s work with ice cream provided by one of the ride’s sponsors, Blue Bunny Ice Cream.
“Thanks to David and Blue Bunny Ice Cream,” they said via email.
