Day 5 – Rest Day in Delta

What a super day to relax after four solid days of riding. Enjoyed sitting around the lobby for breakfast with the group, chillin’ in the pool on a hot day with my wife and kids! Ravell put on a clinic for bike maintenance and cleaning, then he and Larry pulled me out of a mechanical jam with my bike (thanks fellas). Ate some of Delta’s finest cuisine….probably more than I should have!

I mentioned to a few people today that this week kind of feels like Summer Camp……a little anxiety before it begins, but by the end – you DON’T want it to end!! Today offered some reflection on the past five days, looking through some pictures that have been taken by several of the support crew. So many things to share, but my favorite for sure was stopping at the top of Sacramento Pass to remember those close to us, who have been affected by cancer. The story behind how this tradition began is so sincere and sweet….and to carry on this tradition each year thereafter in the manner that Jeff has done – has brought a special meaning to me for this week.

Thank you Denise and Darcy for the cupcakes tonight! Oh so flippin’ good!!

Seeing the many riders arrive this evening into Delta built my excitement and anticipation for tomorrow morning!! Looking forward to the roll out from Delta with the additional riders!!
