    WHY I RIDE?

    I ride as a husband, son, and brother of educators who have dedicated themselves to making a difference in the lives of children. I ride as a future father who wants his children to share the same joy and safety that I experienced at school.

    I can't fathom a day where any one of my family members wake up one morning to go to work and never return due to gun violence at a school. While I have ridden almost every day for the almost 15 years, I don't think I have ever had the opportunity to ride my bike for such a meaningful purpose. If getting on my bike and riding can make a difference and open people’s eyes to the changes that need to be made, I will ride for as long and far as I can.
