65 Miles Behind Us!

Today we rode out of Central Park in NYC on a 65 mile trek  into New Jersey — to the welcoming home of the Thakkar family.  It took us about 1.5 hours to get out of the city and cross the George Washington bridge, but the view from the bridge was beautiful! Along the way, we had some flats and mechanical malfunctions. The eighty-degree heat created an environment most unpleasant for our first day. However, tomorrow we are doing 83 miles in an expected temperature of 93 degrees! So, we are all prepared with gatorade, water, granola bars and of course sunscreen.

We would like to extend our gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Thakkar, the parents of I4k’s founder, Anish Thakkar.  They have been very supportive of the organization since its inception, and today specifically they truly uplifted our spirits on this tough first day. Thank you, Thakkars!

All us riders are off to bed so we’re well rested for the 80+ miles that await us tomorrow.

We bid you adieu.
