I thoroughly enjoyed this event! I was able to ride over three days. I was able to ride away from home for my longer distance and rode the other two days on my personal property. As a healthcare worker directly involved in the pandemic response, I have limited free time for the immediate future. This allowed me to ride as my schedule allowed, even if just a few miles. It was great motivation and I would definitely do it again! Thank you!
