I’ve been giving some serious thought to applying for the Ride:Well Tour for next summer. It is a group of 17 cyclists who ride across America over June/July/early August and help raise money for Blood:Water Mission (they build clean water wells in Africa). I have no idea how I could do it with my job, or how I’d be able to raise all the money I would need to. But I am really tempted to pursue it. Let me know if you have any thoughts for or against it.
