As a happy and grateful 2-time rider, I can attest to the fact that this is way more than a fundraising event. In fact, after spending 10 days in-a-row riding roughly 100-miles per day with a good-sized group of cyclists of all shapes, sizes, experience, and nationalities, I’ve come to realize this fantastic fundraising event is the perfect metaphor for tacking big, complex challenges.
This is because in cycling, teamwork is essential to tacking big challenges—like riding 900-miles in 10 days in the fastest and most efficient way possible. I’ve also seen how a team that works together to ride roughly 500 miles miles in 5 consecutive days, experiences joy, camaraderie, and satisfaction that comes from tackling big challenges and working together to accomplish both long and short-term objectives.
I thank you for the support. And so do future generations!
