This July I turn 30. To celebrate, Anastasiya and I will be hosting a party in Sausalito, if you are in town it would be great to see you. Please RSVP at this link here so we have an idea of how many are coming – final location will be based on expected turnout so please RSVP early and we will email you once it's finalized. There will be BBQ, drinks, tapas, cool people and amazing views of the Bay!
At the end of July, I will also be flying to the Pyrenees to partake in a grueling mountainous road bike stage race called Trois Etapes (http://teamfoodcycle.org/the-trois-etapes/). The beneficiary of this race is the charity each team rides for and my few spare hours I have not spent working have been dedicated to training. My team will be riding for Team FoodCycle, a UK charity that combines volunteers, surplus food and spare kitchen spaces to create tasty, nutritious meals for people at risk of food poverty and social isolation. Their mission is to help build their community both by giving good nutrition to those that need it but also by creating opportunities for more privileged to give back to the less fortunate.
For those following our off the bike adventures, I have publicly been in something of a battle with a treasure hunting public company which I believe is worth zero and have shorted the shares accordingly (http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-04-29/the-hedge-fund-kid-and-the-treasure-ship). I have personally committed to donate my personal profits to charity and I will be donating at least $3,000 to FoodCycle.
I am very lucky to live with a wonderful wife and don’t need much in the way of material possessions so rather than giving me gifts for my 30th birthday, please consider donating to FoodCycle (link: www.virginmoneygiving.com/RyanMorris). I would greatly appreciate the support for a worthy cause.
When & Where
Ryan & Anastasiya
Rather than giving me gifts for my 30th birthday, please consider donating to FoodCycle (link: www.virginmoneygiving.com/RyanMorris), I will be racing on their behalf at the Trois Etapes bike race in the Pyrenees in August.
