This came to us when we realized the estimated times of arrival and distances did not have a direct relationship in Texas. For example, signs that read “1 mi to next stop” was really 0.2 Miles and a 1 mile walk to grocery store was well over 30 minutes walk. We don’t mean to throw shade, Texas. We love y’all and can’t thank you enough for everything.
Here’s some highlights of the weekend in no particular order…
Decked out in Primal Wear on our way- early flight & bike boxes all packed and ready to go.
MS cookies from the VIP dinner and expo.
Rise and shine! Day 1- Let’s do this! Time to embrace the suck!
Day 1 breakfast. $20 oatmeal with banana, berries, almond butter, potatoes, and bacon. Breakfast of champions.
Morning sunshine! 🌞 This is our MS Champion bandana. It comes with us for each ride. If you or someone you know has MS, we would love to add them to our bandana and ride for them! Please drop us a line so we can add their name! 🧡🚴🏻♀️
Smiles all around- riding strong on Day 1!
Day 1 friends – Jeri and John and a slick photobomb!

Thank you to all who made this possible from sponsors to donors, the MS Society, family and friends. Especially Michael Augustine, Jon Steppic, Chris Baer, and our TVR crew. We couldn’t do this without you.
To those living with MS, here’s to you. You are why we ride. Love to you all and see you when we land.
