Pedal The Cause – The Ride

An incredible event. 10/10. It was such an intentional and inspiring day with a few incredible moments and tough turns.

 

Coronado Bridge

An incredible ride that starts with a steep climb up a sectioned off Coronado bridge. What a view.

Broken spoke! At mile 3 right towards the bottom of the bridge going at close to top speed K hears a weird sound and immediately stops. Fortunately a few friends coming up behind us are able to help K out enough to allow her to keep going.

Amazing views

A few pot holes and I hit a massive one at ~20 mile mark and flew off the bike. Few bruises and scrapes.

All in all an incredible cause and something K + I hope to be a part of as long as we’re here in SD. K’s already got her sights on the 55mi and we’ll start training soon as we get the front wheel fixed.

Join us next year!

Pedal the Cause 2022 – Why I Ride

I still remember it pretty vividly. I was sitting in the MTR in Hong Kong with my parents and my sister, coming home from something later in the evening. We were fairly alone in our section which is pretty rare for a city as packed as HK is.

My dad tells my sister and I that he’s got some news. It’s nothing to worry about but definitely something. The doctor has found some shadows on his last scan and they’ll need to do more tests. In the ensuing years those shadows would morph and start a fight for life.

Over the years, this dreadful conversation has been repeated in families and between loved ones all around the world. Far too many of them end in gut-wrenching and painful loss. I am too acquainted with this disease. Both my granddads had it, my dad had it, my mom’s had it, those closest to me have battled it.

So this April 9th, I’m joining the cause and biking 25mi to raise money for collaborative cancer research to cure cancer in our lifetime. Because f*** cancer. Will you join me?
