Thank you for riding

As it gets later, the streets become lined with more and more spectators. Some of them have family members riding, others live along the route and others have a more personal connection to the ride.

As we pedal along many people thank us for riding. During the last 17 miles, we rode by one man who said “thank you for riding. It is the money that you raise that saved my wife’s life this year.”

It is things like that that make the 190 miles seem easy.

  1. If I wasn’t so doggone proud of you all, I would be more than a bit envious. What a wonderful and rewarding experience for a mother and her two daughters. Go! Go! GO! G-MA
