March 27, 2021-We ride in the "Walk, Run and Roll for Daniel", Children's Hospital Charity Ride/Walk/Run Event
We try to make this event every year but it was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19 virus but was in full swing for 2021! It starts at 9AM with a 8 AM packet pick up time and it was CHILLY, 30 F with a constant breeze, BURR!!! We got our T-shirts and walked around the expo/registration area that had a few vendors till the start time. Got lined up and headed out with about 60 riders, the RIDE was 15 K round trip heading out via back streets, bike lanes and urban trails over to the Buffalo Lodge Bicycle Resort/Hotel for hot chicken biscuits from Chick-Fil-A then turned around and headed back to the expo area for door prize drawings. The M/C was Daniel himself not quite a teen ager he has had 6 brain operations and has become a "Ambassador" for the local Children's Hospital here in Co. Springs, CO. Always smiling and happy kinda kid!! The goal was $2000 and we raised $3500 and all the proceeds go to the hospital. It was a great way to start 2021 on a for once, POSITIVE deed! Looking forward to next years event! Here is a short video of the ride:
