What a Sendoff from The Prep

Another Special Start

Day 1 of Ride Hard Breathe Easy was a special start to this year’s ride.  It felt like last year all over again, with family and friends each doing their parts.  And we again had support from firefighters, this time with a rousing and loud sendoff from Local 22!  Thank you, Greg, Ed and team!

We started at The Prep, and I am so grateful for everything The Prep did to again support the ride.  Kevin Ryan helped setup the day and even met us at the end of the ride, so he could drive two teachers back who were part of the ride.  Susie Cook, the first EVER RHBE female rider, and Andrew Whelan each joined us for our over 90-mile trek today.  Thank you each for making our day that much more special.

The Magnificent Seven

We were also joined by Erwil Heath from SAP, Bob Burke and Kevin Larkin from Guy’s Bicycles, and my brudder, Tom Tom.  We smiled, laughed, pedaled and had a great time winding through Bucks County, take the bridge from New Hope to Lambertville and finishing at Plainfield, NJ.  Thank you each for adding your brains, your wit and everything you brought to make the day so much fun.

Great support, as always

Our SAGgers, Beth and Karen, are experienced SAGgers from last year’s ride, and they kept us fed, hydrated and laughing all day.  And our finishing beer.  Great job, ladies.  We have another few days together and I am really looking forward to having some more laughs.

Looking Forward

Tomorrow will be anudder fun day, as we will head up north and make our way to Cannondale before finishing another 90 miles.  Erwil and I are proudly riding Cannondale and are excited to meet the gang from Cannondale.

22 more fun days ahead.  Thakns to everyone for joining us at the start, and as always, Go Prep!

Day 1 of Ride Hard Breathe Easy 2018 is in the books!
