and Gina Fuda, work schedules keep them apart so much they essentially have to plan 50-mile bike rides to give themselves quality time together.

Later this month, one of those rides will help raise money for charity. For the fourth year, the duo is planning to pedal for the 13th annual Rodman Ride for Kids on Sept. 26

"It's a bonding thing that we've done; we stick together the whole route," Fuda said, noting she'd be willing to do the Ride's 100-mile course if he is. "I come down here specifically so we can cook dinner together. As long as we can physically keep doing it, we'll do it. It's one of the best things we can do together every year."

The couple was talking behind the counter of Ryan's fairly new restaurant, Geno's Pizza and Wings on Central Street, during a lull Monday. Ryan spends most of his time there while Fuda works in Worcester for the Key Program and the Probation Department.
