WHY I RIDE

Family and friends,
I almost didn't sign up this year. 😒 I've seen a lot of devastation to people and families caused by cancer including my own. I'm a surviver as is one of my brothers. My dad and my sister lost their battle with cancer and my other brother has been battling cancer for the past 6 plus years. I used to cycle extensively, never a super rider, but in the top percentile of enthusiast. I slowed down my riding about 4 years ago. What changed?

My brother is still fighting and I hope and pray he continues to survive, but his odds seem less and less each year and that just pisses me off. I good friend passed this year and he was one of the toughest people I knew, however, he was also one of the most positive people I knew as well. I need to ride again for my own sake, to be healthier. But, I need to ride for these two people, in honor of one and in memory of the other. Pedal is the one fund raising organization that truly can make a difference for all of our kids and their kids.

I guess that's really why I ride.... To save those that follow.
Your donation will be sooooo appreciated.

Thank you,
And remember to Live and Love Life
Kirk
