Feeling the MoJo on the road
Although we decided against doing 100 miles in the heat and humidity, most of us who rode Sunday morning got in a metric century (62 miles) or more, before the sun unleashed it's full wrath. Doug rode in from his perch high atop Chester, Mark Mangano and I cruised in from our neighborhood and Dave Lawson and Phil Bellville met us at the Calcutta YMCA parking lot.

We caught up to Joe Anthony on the way out to Lisbon, and Fred Pappas met us at the Greenway Trail and rode that roundtrip with us.Phil got 30 miles in before heading off to church with his wife.

We also had a special surprise Mojo sighting as longtime Spinner and Team Mojo Army member Vickie "HOF" Bock and her husband Dan were riding on the Greenway Trail.

After leaving the trail, local cycling legend and Mahoning Valley Cycling stalwart Bob Batchelor, longtime organizer of the former New Waterford Ride for Sight road races, found us and rode back Routes 154 and 7 with the crew before heading back North.

Buy a shirt = Join the Team!
Team Mojo USA was born on June 13, 2004 as a four-man team entry in the Tappan Lake Adventure Race in Deersville, Ohio, part of HFP Racing's Tecnica Adventure Race series, where we captured first place.

Since then, Team Mojo has evolved into the Team Mojo Army, whose members practice and promote a healthy lifestyle of fitness and positive attitude.

Socrates summed it up best when he said "It is a pity to grow old and never know the strength and endurance of which your body is capable."

Membership to Team Mojo can be yours with the purchase of official Mojowear.
