Thanks to everyone who supported this ride! We raised almost $2.15 million this year which will go a very long way towards funding The Center's AIDS/HIV service programs for the next year.

On a personal experience note: it was a great weekend for 275 miles. The weather was mostly perfect and not a lot of headwind. Every mile was a joy, even the 10% grade ones. Of course, there is nothing quite as powerful as having over 500 riders and crew come together for a single purpose. I am always left inspired (and maybe a little tired) at the end on Sunday afternoon.

If I wind up in any official pictures this year, I'll weave them into a recap and post a link to it here, but in the meantime, here I am rolling through the finish line on Day 2.

Full disclosure, I had to fake this photo...no one took one at my first crossing, they missed it the second time, and this is my third loop through that arch.
