I have ridden this ride 13 of the last 15 years with college roommates and friends. It is a great ride, and a great cause. If you know of anyone who has compromised lung capacity, you know that it affects everything they do, from walking up the stairs to trying to sleep at night. Please join me in supporting this amazing organization as they lead the charge to fight the causes of lung disease, and search for cures.
This year is especially important to me, as it symbolizes my recovery from a nasty bike wreck that landed me in the hospital for 3 days, and required 2 surgeries and more than 12 months of recovery and rehab. 100 miles on a bike will be a huge test for my knee, but the cause and the other riders make it worth it.
