 If you happen to run into me in Corpus Christi this Saturday, please don't run into me. I, along with some 1,100 other bicyclists, will be taking part in the annual Conquer the Coast bicycle ride. It should be fun as well as challenging.

 The ride begins and ends under the Harbor Bridge near downtown Corpus Christi. I've signed up for the 65-mile ride and Leslie said she is also interested in taking part. The route is mostly flat but riders must pedal over two big bridges, three or four smaller ones and take a short ferry ride to Mustang Island.

Trophies were awarded to the top finishers last year and the rest of us got medallions with the number of miles we completed embossed on it. It rained during the 2007 ride so everyone did the 25-mile course. Hopefully, the weather will be better this year.

 You can register for this ride online at Online registration deadline is Thursday.

 Anyone want to come with me?
