Today is day three of Kathy’s adventure and she has this to say… Day 3: hot. No shade in camp today but they have […]Read More Trekking Across Ohio
It’s been unseasonably warm, and many of us have had an opportunity to turn those pedals a few times. The 2012 bike season is officially here, and in just a few weeks, a few team members will be off on their first ride, the Nevada Jaycee’s Annual Bike Ride (NABR). The team is still up in the […]Read More 2012 Bike Season is Here!

What hill […]Read More Day 5 Riding: Altoona to Grinnell

After riding in heat that was showing over 100 degrees on my computer today, Janette’s pool was a very welcome sight. I got to ride with the Colorado kids today. I enjoyed it immensely and appreciated that […]Read More Day 2 Post from Team Member Glenn
