"what of us makes us who we are"

I don't know if this is okay, but I read this post on facebook from Erin McDermott... Thought I would pass it along to my friends on the Ride:Well site. I thought it was a well written and thoughtful piece.

this is a line from sara groves again. from her song "rewrite this tragedy". I dont know exactly what she is talking about if there is a specific story behind the song or not but some of the lyrics have really been resonating with me recently. she says, "sometimes it's hard to… Continue

Open letter to the 09 RWT team.

Hey team,

Last week I said that I'd write a letter addressing some of the emotions you might be feeling right now. I thought it would be better if you heard it from a bunch a wise people instead of me...

"Remember the high board at the swimming pool? After days of looking up at it you finally climbed the wet steps to the platform. From there, it was higher than ever. There were only two ways down: the steps to defeat of the dive to victory. You stood on the edge, shivering… Continue

Undergoing Changes & Moving Forward

Hey all, just want to let you know that you will see some drastic changes on the Ride:Well Tour website as we move forward with our plans for 2009. In the next few weeks we have a meeting with Blood:Water Mission to discuss the successes of 2008 and make final plans for next summer. We see some great things on the horizon.

A Toast to Texas!

Thank you to everyone in Texas! In Texas we raised over $100,000.00 for fresh water wells, health clinics and sanitation projects in Africa. A special thanks goes out to The Oaks Fellowship in Red Oak and to the whole town of Tyler. Y'all are great people, ya' hear!

Encouragement for the Team (Please Read)

I'm the guy in the office that the team reports to on a daily basis. The last few days have been tough for the team. They've made it to their destination each day, but they have been cycling from sun-up to sun-down in crazy heat and its wearing on them a bit. Right now they are cycling to Quemado, MN from Show Low, AZ. It is a 95 mile day, temperatures should be a little better, but it will still be hot.

Yesterday Matthew Williams found out his… Continue

Day 1-3 (Good Stuff)

The team is currently on day three of cycling and in good spirits. Tonight they will be at Twenty Nine Palms, CA. Quick update: the support vehicle broke down on day 1 in the mountains (transmission problems) and was held up a day as it was fixed by Ezekiel in Hollywood. Thanks Ezekiel! The team carried on. Last night the tour leaders picked up the van in LA and it's back with the team.

Also, one of our cyclists broke her tailbone as… Continue

Setting up Camp

Thursday all the cyclist arrive to Santa Monica for Team Training. This has been a long time in coming. Spirits are high and everyone is excited. We are at Elements Church in Santa Monica. They have been such a blessing, giving us food, a place to stay, etc... I feel a kindred spirit as they have really embraced what we are doing and the cause. We are excited for the team to arrive tomorrow. It is fun to finally meet everyone.

On the Road!

Yesterday the team leaders loaded the trailer and started driving to LA. Prior to departure, Jesse was tying up loose ends in his real estate business while helping Brianne move out of their house. Drew was purchasing a bike since his other bike is in Europe on another tour. I was shopping at Sam's Club, REI and Wal Mart trying to get all the supplies we need for the tour. I bought everything except sidewalk chalk, 35 mm 200 speed film, licorice, a firewire and matches. Not bad. It was a hectic… Continue

Great Week & Handlebars

This is a great week, the last full week before the start of the tour. I can hardly believe that it is here. The Ride:Well Tour has been a work in progress for the last full year. It was in June of last year that we met with Blood:Water about doing this project. At the time, we didn't even know what to call it. Now it is upon us. This is a great week because a lot of the things we've been working on comes together this week. We have our… Continue
