Why I ride
First of all, I’d like to thank all my friends and family who donated to my Courage Classic ride last year. Due to your generosity, I was able to raise over $2300 to benefit the great work done by Children's Hospital Colorado! I am both proud and humbled to know I have such great people in my life who are willing to sacrifice so much to help the ongoing care and research programs at CHC!
This year, due to obvious reasons, the organized ride won't be held as usual. However, my son-in-law Taylor and I will representing Team Endorfins by doing our own ride covering 125 miles over two days of mountain riding. Day 1 is a one way trip from Granby to Steamboat over two passes covering abour 85 miles. Day 2 is an out and back from Granby to Grand Lake, about 40 miles.
I sincerely hope you can find the means to contribute. Any little bit helps, just click on the “donate” button above and follow the instructions. Thanks in advance, I will be thinking of all of you on the ride!
After ride report
It was a great weekend, with a few glitches! Taylor's bike died about 13 miles into the first day, so I ended up as a solo rider for the last 70 miles. Still a good ride, other than some scary moments with no bike shoulder on Hwy. 40! Also, I am going to rename Rabbit Ear's Pass to False Summit Pass, since I thought I had reached the top 2 or 3 times, only to find that there was more climbing to do! Rolled into Steamboat about one in the afternoon, and shared a couple of cold beverages with my SAG team of Phil and Taylor! Day 2 was a really nice ride which ended up covering about 45 miles along with Taylor on a fixed bike. We had a true team on the return leg, with Phil and Lauren riding the last 23 miles with us.
