It was great getting to meet everyone and a pleasure riding to Tiburon! For those that are interested in checking out the Bay Trail in the east bay, I just set up a ride for later this month. https://greatcyclechallenge.com/Events/Detail/367

Thanks to everyone for coming out on Saturday. It was beautiful weather and so much fun to meet everyone in person. I only had to walk my bike up a couple of the inclines. :-) A special thank you to Jacob and his mom Nicole for the inspiration. Don't forget to host your own rides throughout the month of June. You guys are awesome and together we are going to kick cancer's butt!!
