See that guy next to me? That's Ronnie. Ronnie and this group has been riding together for over 15 years. He celebrates a big Birthday this year so we are heading to Big Bend National Park for 6 days of cycling in the countryside along the the Rio Grande in West Texas to in honor of this momentous milestione. Ronnie, and the group, have always been big supporters of Phoenix Bikes, my favorite education non-profit that teaches kids to build and repair bycycles. The kids can earn a bike for themselves and others in need. Phoenix Bikes does not charge for this service and targets kids from lower income districts in and around Arlington. We rely heavily on the generosity of friends, family, and community. Please donate what you can in Ronnie's honor so Phoenix Bikes can keep doing this important work. I will be sending updates and pictures from Big Bend.
