WHY WE RIDE

Dear Friends --
PTC10!!
Where has Victoria gone? I say heaven, without hesitation, and her spirit soars in and amongst us, everyday, all the time. Just look for her in the calm beauty of the sunrise or captivating song of the bluebird. If you are aware and open, you will find our sweet Victoria still with us.

Having said this, yet understanding interpretations on what happens to our spirit differ according to beliefs and experiences, I hope all agree that a person lives on through those who gather to mourn their passing and to celebrate their life. It's not simply that we remember loved ones; they live on through things they taught us and in the way they affected our lives.

Pedal the Cause and Team Victoria is celebrating 10 years with the September 2019 ride. My participation is one of the most important ways in which Victoria continues to live on in me. I hope the same can be said for each of you. And I hope you find the strength to tell her story and bring new teammates, new enthusiasm to our team. It might be a year to reflect, but it certainly is not a year to sit on the sidelines. Last year we were 121 teammates raising $164,000. Our goal for 2019 is 150 teammates raising $200,000.

As a suggestion, let's all think about riding as a team on one of two courses: the PTC Classic (20 miles) and the Two Bridges (37 miles). By focusing our participation on these two courses, we can all be together at the Start Line and we will all finish within an hour of each other. This will put us all together again post-ride for a special Team Victoria Party and Lunch at our team tent. THE BIGGER THE TEAM, THE BIGGER THE PARTY, THE BIGGER THE "KISS" WE COLLECTIVELY SEND TO VICTORIA!

Regardless of whether you decide to ride the Classic or Two Bridges (or by all means go for the Century if you have that "itch"), think about setting a fundraising goal that challenges you. Guarantee that amount as part of your registration or at least list it on your ride page so that we can help each other stay on top of their goals.

Minimum fundraising is $375. Goals of $500, $600, $1000 are common.
Milestone incentive levels are $2,500 (Yellow Jersey), $5,000 (King of the Mountain), $10,000 (Road Warrior) and $25,000 (Podium). Pick your poison and show your passion!

Victoria lives on in us through Team Victoria. She will be smiling down on us, cheering us across the finish line as always. The difference is this year, we won't be looking her in the eyes, but rather we will see her in each other's eyes as we cross the finish line in celebration of her life and all she taught us as our Warrior Princess.

Thank you for riding or spinning. Thank you volunteering. Thank you for joining the Kids Challenge. Thank you for fundraising and DONATING. Cancer research dollars are as meaningful and precious as ever.

With love and gratitude --
