I am a new rider and a beginner but Dave Desrochers has continued to show support (took me on my first ride, lent me a road bike, shows the love) so that I feel confident that I can train for this. I am one of those people who like to push my boundaries and in my 50th year, this ride has become just that.

I am personally terrified of this ride but must remain positive just like the others who are dealing with this disease. I am also hopeful that as a new beginner I might also inspire other beginners to join the team to ride with me on this two day ride to Seattle. This is not a race this is an experience to remember forever, being part of a motivated group of like minded.
