'Big Mike' goes wet and wild for MS tour

* "Big Mike" Dowd recently completed what he called a "Wet and Wild" Multiple Sclerosis Coast the Coast 170-mile bike tour in Sandy Hook, once again breaking his own record for fund-raising to help battle the dreaded disease.

* As of May 22, he had raised $2,240.00 in pledges.

* The 30-year-old cycler is a member of Boy Scout Troop #364, an Internet DJ on and editor/cameraman for WBHS-34.

* Riding his black/red tint Cannondale T-700, Mike is riding thanks to what he calls his "bunch of caring people."

* This past May 20 - 21, the wet weather down the shore caused "fish-tailing," wet sneakers and the occasional splash by driver, made for a wet and wild weekend.

* Also, it made for cold, as in 45 degrees.

* Mike also was interviewed by local weatherwoman and WNBC-4 television.

* He also bumped into Silver Lake's Bob McVough, who rode the 50-mile course.

* Anyone wishing to join the bike tour or become a volunteer in the Mid-Jersey Chapter, give a call at (732) 643-0010. Pledges are still being accepted at the Belleville Times at 667-2100.
