Building for Days to Come

Assistant Ride Leader’s Log. Bike Date 5.15-05-28.22:20

Yesterday and today were days that demonstrated exactly how much the team has learned already in terms of what needs to be done in terms of logisitics as well as how to improve as a cyclist. On day 1, even the slightest incline would seem huge. Now I know I can get up them so long as I just keep breathing, pedaling, and using my full range of gears.

Tomorrow we are going to do a super short ride of about 25 miles so we can visit a hope lodge and meet with some Daymun Runyon researchers. I’m not quite sure what to expect as I’ve never seen anyone as they are undergoing cancer treatment. I hope that I am able to find a way to make my visit pleasant and give off good vibes without annoying or exhausting who I’m talking to. Fingers crossed!

    I am confident it will be a very moving experience. I am further confident that anyone at the facility will be encouraged by your teams’ effort to fight the very disease they are fighting.

    Way to be there for them, both on a broad level through the fund raising to the bike ride to physically lending support. Did not realize you would be experiencing all these aspects
