My team is THE reason I was able to get not only one, but TWO centuries done, BACK TO BACK DAYS! Never in my life could I have even imagined accomplishing this feat! So, let me tell you how we did it…
With a little bit of genius from Matthew Morrin and a lotta bit of teamwork, we were able to put together a fantabulous formation that fought the rough 20mph winds coming our way. I present you our formation, The Escalator:
All in all, the drafting, dragging, pacing, and all came together like magic!! Thank you, Matt. Also, special thank you to Dreas Thyssen, who made sure that we rode in as a team to make our 5:30pm mandatory arrival time at 5:29pm…a minute to spare. #Solidarity
In conclusion, I have officially finished my TWO CENTURY RIDES and it took the whole R4WH village to accomplish it, but to my teammates: endless thank yous for all that you have sacrificed in order to help me accomplish this seemingly impossible feat.
To our readers, I have now under my belt two centuries and two marathons, but I want to let you know that this is a minutia of the accomplishments that have been accomplished by our team as a whole! We have riders that have easily completed not two, but FOUR CENTURIES in a row! Most ride faster than imaginable with the distance of a whole country to cover (one day, a group averaged 22mph!!! #WhatTheWhat?!). As you try and wrap your mind around the incredible possibility of that, let me close by saying: I love my team and owe one, unbelievable personal lifetime accomplishment to them (<3 you guys dearly).
Thank you for reading!
Til next time,
Ride on, dudes! \m/
