An eager bunch of PMC cyclists from New York got up early to show their PMC spirit to the nation.
The perky group of pedalers and volunteers: Susan Fier, Marlo Bakst, Paul Straton, Robert Goodman, Maureen Errity, Claudine Kipp, Ed Gallagher, Brittney Gallagher, Erin Gallagher, Anthony Cook, James Kotarski, who were equipped with caffeine, PMC shirts and a PMC banner, made their way over to the CBS Early Show Plaza at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue to get some air time and spread the message of the 30th annual ride.
They attracted the attention of former Bourne resident and Early Show Weatherman, Lonnie Quinn, who introduced the crowd. The riders gave a quick PMC explanation and talked about raising money to fight cancer.
Later, the PMCers got a lesson in stretching from Early Show anchor Harry Smith who is also a cyclist. (Harry come ride in the PMC!)
“It was great because Harry Smith, during a break, came over to show us (the PMC crowd) some good back stretching exercises and he REALLY demonstrated by taking suit jacket off and getting down on the pavement!” said Susan Fier.
Tomorrow, tune into Good Morning America between 8-8:30 a.m. and see our NY PMCers chat with Weather anchor Sam Champion about the PMC.
