I participated in the Ultimate Cycling Challenge at Ridgepoint Community Church in Holland as a part of the Cross Country Cycle MTB team last Saturday. The fundraiser was started several years ago to help raise funds for the LiveStrong Foundation. Needless to say, eyes darted around the room when it was announced at our team meeting that we’d be participating again this year. Fortunately, despite Lance’s recent banishment and ‘coming clean’ (to any extent that can be believed), the place was packed.
Our team had two spots side-by-side which made spending a couple of hours on the bike much more enjoyable as I got to know one of my teammates whom I’ve ridden around, but never had the chance to get to know that well. Here’s a brief video of the venue and example of the activities going on while we rode:
