Why I ride?
My father, the late Michael B. Marion, was an avid sportsman and outdoorsman. He also did Ride the Rockies but old-school style. He rode 10-18 speed bikes with toe clips and 10 more pounds of weight than I carry. Unfortunately I never had the chance to bike with him on Ride the Rockies but I feel his spirit. His love for physical fitness and the Rocky mountains inspired me to do my first RTR in 2002. Although I have been so very lucky to have never been homeless, I think of the plight of the less fortunate. I think about them when I train and suffer going up hills, I think about them when my hands are cold, I think about them when a biking buddy, Pat Drummond showed us his granola bar stash he has for people looking for handouts, I thought about them this past weekend when we toured Samaritan House. I feel privileged to contribute.
Thank you for considering a donation.
