WHY I RIDE

This is my 6th year pedaling. Many miles one crank at a time. Often trying to keep up with people on our team who make riding 50 or 100 miles all around St. Louis look much easier than it is when you're on a bike behind them. It's incredible that many of the strongest riders on our team are the ones who are also successfully battling and beating cancer. Their courage and hope is humbling to support.

Teri - our team captain and my friend - might be the strongest of all. One of my favorite quotes from her is "I'm not just going to make a difference, I'll be the difference". If you don't know Teri, check her out at terigriege.com. Then reconsider what you consider challenging in your life, and how you choose to tackle it.

Cancer is personal to me - it has impacted my family and my friends. My work is dedicated to helping defeat it. I ride again this year on Sunday September 30th in memory of my family members Bill Warren and Carl Henze, both of whom lost battles to cancer.

Thank you for supporting my ride. My goal is modest and I'd like to beat it again this year. Remember, all you have to do is click - I'm the guy on the bike!

Love,

Rich
