After a few words, this post will be photo heavy!!
All the miles and more importantly the saddle time has paid off, for this group!!
That women to left puts up with a lot of “stupid bike shit” on bad days…. August 27th was not one of the bad days!! Both her and I could not be more proud as parents, of our children’s never say die aditudes throughout the day!!
Her continued improvement with the camera is truly breathtaking!! Most, if not all, of the following pictures are all her!!
Awesome job Cindi!!
Again, all the time we as a group have put in paid off in huge accomplishments this day!!
Have taken huge strides this year.
That guy on the right, has gotten stronger and faster, along with more confident.
The dude to the left also has gotten stronger and faster, along with learning how to struggle through adversity without giving up. He’s shown that the mantra of just keep “moving forward” through it all works to the end goal.
Super proud of both of these guys!!
And finally this one…..
I don’t have the words to explain what I saw out of her on Saturday!!
She started off like a house on fire!!
I mentioned she might want to dial it back a bit from an average speed of 14 mph for the 1st 8-10 miles. The reply I got in return?? “Dad, I got this… I’ll be fine!” LOL
After a seat height adjustment of nearly 3″, (can you say growth spert) in a matter of days?? This little human rocked 51.4 miles with not one negative peep for nearly 5 hours and 35 minutes!!
Blown away by your performance J!! Proud is an understatement!!
This was her demeanor after ice cream and near the 40 mile mark on Shannon Lake Rd.
I had to ask her to do it again, because my chin was dragging on the gravel when I turned around and saw her do it at 1st. LOL
Also, a huge shout out to Scott and Susan; and all the volunteers!! Without you all, this event would definetly not go off as smoothly!!
Below are photo’s taken by Cindi… no words needed…. but maybe NICE JOB MOM!!!!!!!!!

As always, when I get more photo’s I’ll add them!!
