  • The End of an Exceptional Month of the Great Cycle Challenge
    3 Jul 2017

    The Great Cycle Challenge has come to a close! My fellow cyclists and I have pedaled a total of 2,694,406 miles and raised $4,388,665 so far! Thank you to all of my sponsors who graciously donated to fight against kids' cancer. Additionally, your donations inspired me to rise at 5 am three days a week with a month's total of 801 miles, 300 more miles than my goal. While June and the Challenge is over, my thoughts and wishes for all the kids' affected by cancer remain strong as I continue to pedal throughout the year. Calli, stay strong and I'm sending healing vibes each and every day to you and your family! While my body is somewhat tired, I am saddened to think the month is over as I, like other participants, may not be updated on the progress of the children like Cali. To those who participated in the ride and all who donated, I thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are more than awesome!

  • The Final Week of the Great Cycle Challenge
    26 Jun 2017

    Hi Everyone,

    Well this week is the final week of the Great Cycle Challenge and due to the generous donations of my sponsors I have raised over $1500, surpassing my goal of $500. I set my miles at 500 and have ridden 713 as of yesterday as this cause inspires me as well as my sponsors! I am in awe of the kindness bestowed upon me, but more importantly to the children who are struggling with this devastating disease. The week isn't up! I have 4 more days and I will be rising at 5 am the next four days accumulate more miles. Currently, I am number 1 in Idaho for raising money and number 2 for the number of miles ridden. Now, I know why I'm tired. But, I need your help to raise more money! If you haven't donated, please feel free to go to my webpage: https://greatcyclechallenge.com/Riders/BonnieDavisKenaley and submit your donation. Let's make this a grand finale!

  • 600 Miles for Cali!
    22 Jun 2017

    Today I reached an intentional goal of topping 600 miles for the month of June, dedicated to my gal, Cali. This young girl just received devastating news this past week that her cancer treatment was not effective and needs to begin a new experimental regimen. My heart goes out to you and your family, Cali! During this ride, I envisioned that with each stroke of my pedal that I was pushing your cancer away. The riders of the Great Cycling Challenge send our love, wish you a speedy recovery and will make every effort to kick cancer's butt!

    600 Miles for Cali!

  • 500 + miles
    20 Jun 2017

    AT 4:34 am, Bowditch, my feline companion, commenced his paw nudge routine, indicating it was time for breakfast. My attempts to ignore him failed and I decided to get out of the cozy confines of my bed and attend to Bowditch and his brother as well as prepare for an early morning ride with my biking partner, Sherry Rogan. When we departed from Sherry's at 6 am it was 68 degrees with no wind, a treat for sure! We took a normally traveled route, yet in reverse. We celebrated today as we both reached our minimal goal of biking 500 miles for the Great Cycling Challenge! Congrats, Sherry Rogan. Although we have separately raised funds for the challenge, our biking experiences have been a team effort.

  • Spinderella Ride - June 17, 2017
    18 Jun 2017

    Spinderella 2017 Ride - Completed the Spinderella Ride (70 miles) yesterday in Pocatello, Idaho! It was the most beautiful ride I have ridden; yet, the most challenging as the headwinds were pretty strong (18-20 mph). One of these days I will reenact ET! After conquering many steep hills, I was rewarded with the opportunity to get down in the hoods and whip down the hill while experiencing pure childlike joy! It was a well-attended event with women coming from Washing, Alberta, Wyoming, Texas, Utah, Idaho, and Montana. I pedaled my fastest and came in 2nd in my age group. Yahoo! But, more important, was the solidarity demonstrated by the women who biked the 10, 22, 50, 70, or 100 miles in an effort to give back to the community and who encouraged each other throughout the ride. They inspire me to continue to bike. Bravo to all who participated!

  • 88 Mile Bike Ride In Memory of Judy Gibney
    14 Jun 2017

    Today I biked 88 miles from Boise, out to Notus and Caldwell, to the north edge of Lake Lowell, Eagle, and finally home. This ride is in memory of my friend, Judy Gibney, mother of Josh and Justin Gibney, who lost her valiant fight against cancer this week. Our reunion of three years ago revealed that old friendships sustain. Thanks, Jude, for the many laughs and times together as friends! In memory of this remarkable woman, I have donated $100 to the Great Cycle Challenge which will be matched by the Macy's and other supporters to fight against kid's cancer, a cause near and dear to Judy's heart.

  • Inaugural ride - 102 miles!
    4 Jun 2017

    Completed 102 miles for the Great Cycling Challenge! Started my ride from home, onto Eagle, up to Beacon. I waved at every motorist! Thank you, Scott Lindsay, for stopping to find out why I was pointing at my shirt and for giving me a generous donation to fight against kid's cancer. The day before I was in bed with an awful cold and I altered today's route to 60-miles; however, after meeting Scott I decided to push forward to 80-miles. Headed to Star Rd and up the hill and connected to McMillan and then to 10-mile and finally to Columbia. It was a beautiful day as I road around Lake Lowell, yet I kept having saddle problems which necessitated frequent adjustments. Remember, I took my saddle and post to Sanibel Island. Well, I must have been asleep when I put it back on my bike because I put in backward! Ouch, ouch, and a big bruise on the cheek! Eventually, I figured it out and dismantled and reassembled the post and saddle which made for happy ischial tuberosities for the remainder of the ride (44 miles). The breeze was soft with frequent tailwinds and the temperature was perfect! I met several nice individuals on the way back home, a mom who works at a variety store on Greenhurst in Nampa who let me bring my bike in her store when I purchased a drink. Her 11-year-old son was very curious about the older women on the bike. I also rescued Dave Ferguson's John Deere hat from the middle of Ten Mile Road. Dave, a former BSU Math Professor, is a cyclist and farmer. On my last leg of my trip, I met Jeremy, a nice young man who was on his way to help his Dad move to his new apartment. Thank you to these individuals who cheered me on my way during my inaugural ride for the Great Cycle Challenge! 398 miles to go!

  • A Huge Thank You to My Sponsors!
    28 May 2017

    Due to the outstanding donations provided by my sponsors, my picture (see picture below) was posted in New York Time Square on May 24th along with other top 2500 riders in the nation who received the most donations. There are more than 29,000 riders across the country who have committed to ride during the month of June. I'm also riding for Cali, a young girl with cancer who will greatly benefit from your donations. I now have my official Great Cycling Challenge Jersey to wear as I ride during the month of June spread the word of why I'm out on the road pedaling 500 miles. Thank you to my sponsors for making this happen! You are awesome!

  • Rainy 30-mile Ride on Sanibel Island
    25 May 2017

    During the past week, I relocated my biking route to Sanibel Island in sunny Florida! The weather has been conducive to biking daily after renting a carbon road bike from Billy's Bike Rental down the street from our condo. Last evening, my son who was biking with a Burley in tow with his 5-year-old twins and I biked to Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve, a must to see! The 22-mile trip ride was a leisurely one as we saw yellow-crown night herons, great egrets, snowy egrets and other gorgeous birds. After treating ourselves to an ice cream, the last three miles of the ride were met with strong winds and pelting rain as we attempted to avoid falling palm branches. Whew, what a ride!

    This morning was a calmer ride; however, approximately 6 miles into my 30-mile ride the storm clouds appeared as well as the heavy rain which surprisingly felt good and cooled me down. The remnant crosswinds of the last night's storm caused difficulty in steering the bike and gaining a speed of over 18 mph. I arrived back at the condo looking like I had fun in a mud puddle! My reward was having a warm cup of coffee with my fans, my son and twin grandchildren, Zoe and Oliver!

  • Lake Lowell - Gusty Ride with Detours
    15 May 2017

    The Cycling Sixty Chicks (Sherry Rogan and I) embarked on our 71.34-mile ride this morning at 7:30 am with a temperature of 39 degrees. Can it really be May when we need winter gloves and winter thermal wear? Well, the temperature was brisk, though our spirits were enthusiastic as we headed out. We didn't warm up until 30 miles into the ride. The county is busy upgrading the roads; hence, we were confronted with detours and a new route as we headed to and around Lake Lowell. We dug deep into our saddles and low into the hoods as we met 12 mph winds and felt like we were going to be lifted off of our bikes. It was quite the workout. But, we persevered and finally made it home, feeling like we had expended a lot of energy and ready for an afternoon nap. We must admit that we conquered the "Jesus" hill amongst other hills with ease compared to last year so we must be doing better.

  • Parma 80- mile Ride - An Unexpected Arrival - May 9th
    11 May 2017

    As part of my training for century charity rides during the summer as well as to accomplish the 500-mile goal during June, my bike (Bessie) and I traveled to Parma, Idaho today from Eagle - a total of slightly over 80 miles and my first ride to Parma for 2017. The route is challenging with steep hills and frequently encountered hills that make you feel 14 years-old again. Unlike Sunday, the winds were not strong and at times gave us a lift from behind. The surprise of the ride was coming upon a goat who had just given birth to triplets and Mervin, the female cow, who was the goat's best friend and now attentive co-parent to the kids. You just never know what you are going to see on a ride! The encounter with the new family put a smile on my face and motivated me to pedal onward with a light spirit!

  • Sunday, May 7th - A Good Effort
    11 May 2017

    My biking partner, Sherry Rogan, and I (better known as the Cycling Sixty Chicks) planned on making our first 80-mile ride to Parma, Idaho from Eagle. We thought nothing of a nine mph headwind as we started our ride; however, 4 miles into the ride the winds picked up to 14 mph. Our 80-mile ride to and back from Parma did not look promising. We were determined to continue the ride and headed to Star where the winds challenged us even more, and we decided that the winds of the open range in Parma would release us in the air like ET. Hence, we headed home after a very short, yet windy ride of 21.88 miles.

    This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

    Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children’s Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    Bonnie
