June 8th - "Rails to Trails Tour"

     Zach, Cat & I rode around the "Garden of the gods" great time! Foothills Trail close because all the rain. Weather excellent 70-74 degree sunny no wind! We meet lot of people walking, 3 Catrike 700 in row & flag flying! People take lot of pics of us! One man said looking for next indenture, we send him nearest Catrike dealer "Cycle Different" Colorado Springs so beautiful.

June 6th - "Rails to Trails Tour”

    Cat & I rode in a benefit Pedal 4 Possible at Craig Hospital 18.5 miles. The elevation is 6000 feet and there was a lot of ascension feet. Plus Cat's in recovery, so we took it easy. Once we were finished, we had live music, and a huge barbecue!

Cat and I were the guest speakers for the afternoon, It seemed that everyone there already knew the meaning of Hope. There were many different adaptive cycles and an extremely supportive community. We were blown away. We had a great response, a lot of support and we're invite back by Craig hospital to establish deeper relationships with our organizations.
