There are bike trips ... and then there are BIKE TRIPS. This adventure was not only scenic, fun, mentally and physically challenging, and awesome, BUT it was also meaningful, impactful, and fulfilling!! How many of us wish for opportunities where we can put our love of bikes and bike riding to use for a greater good?! This trip was exactly that.
In conjunction with Walgreens and its Red Nose ?? fundraising efforts, as well as People for Bikes and their mission to make riding better for everyone, we embarked on a four day journey from Santa Barbara to Vegas. I could put my thoughts and feelings into words but I'd rather share with you the incredible images taken by Meg McMahon as well as the videos created by Walgreens media crews (see videos below). A few of my not-so-pro iPhone 6 photos are also included ;)
I hope you enjoy reliving this experience as much as I do each time I see these images. Red Noses are raising millions $$ to impact and cure child poverty. Each Nose sold and dollar donated, means children can eat over the weekend when they aren't in school and they can receive life saving vaccines their parents normally could not afford.
If you are moved by our mission I would be SO grateful for your $1 or $5 donation to MY PAGE! We are each trying to raise $5000. Thanks for reading and thanks for your support!!
