This is a great way to bond with others while achieving a big challenge for yourself. I got to be part of a
great charity, and link the friends who sponsored me to a nonprofit that's doing good in the world. And then
the challenge of doing this ride helped me stretch myself and learn to depend on others. When I was going
through difficult sections of the ride, I remembered what we were doing it for, the kids who lacked basic
needs, and the many people who sacrificed financially to help with this project. My job was to do the hard
ride, so it motivated me to live up to my part of the combined effort.
