Bike Trek

America. The new frontier. These are the adventures of the bicycle Enterprise. It’s continuing mission: to cure cancer, to seek out new friendships and new feats, to boldly go where this bike hasn’t gone before.

Assistant Ride Leader’s Log. Bike Date -3.15-05-20.23:15

As I finish – a.k.a. start – packing for our train ride tomorrow, I can’t help but feel a whole bundle of excitement, nervousness, uncertainty, and confidence. I’m still not sure that all of the stuff I plan to bring will fit in my backpack, but I’ve become increasingly aware of how each of these things is trivial when compared to the cause for which we all ride. My personal mission for the ride, in addition to that of the Illini 4000, is to support those around me to encourage them to keep on keeping on. I have been very fortunate to have so many people supporting me throughout my life. I now want to spread that feeling, because facing the unknown and taking risks is always easier knowing you will have someone to lean on when the going gets tough.

Now to finish packing and get some sleep!
