Why We Volunteer

May 31.2016

When Sheri told me two months ago that we were sponsoring the 22nd Annual Ride for the Pass and volunteered me to be our representative Bluegreen rider, I was stoked. I completely ignored the fact that the ride was in mid-May because surely I would have spent plenty of time on my road bike by then. Right? Right? Wrong. The Ride for the Pass is a recreational ride and road bike race up Highway 82 toward Independence Pass that allows riders to enjoy the beautiful Scenic Byway before it is opened to cars for the season. May 21st marked the date of the annual Ride for the Pass as well as my FIRST time on my road bike this year. Undeterred, I jumped on my bike Saturday morning and opted to ride from my house, figuring that it would be a good way to warm up. Unfortunately, I miscalculated how long it would take me to ride up to the start and ended up arriving about ten minutes after everyone had already started the ride/race. Oops.

So, I just started pedaling. And pedaling. And pedaling. The weather was glorious, the view spectacular. I felt surprisingly good considering I hadn’t been on my bike in months. All of the trepidation I felt about doing such a tough ride with cold legs quickly dissipated. Once I reached the top, I was ecstatic! I had done it! I even managed to pass a few people on my way. The wind was howling, so I quickly bundled up in every layer I brought in anticipation of enjoying the best part…the descent.

The Independence Pass Foundation is in amazing organization, and the Ride benefits the Independence Pass Foundation’s restoration work on the Pass. To learn more about the Independence Pass Foundation, please visit http://www.independencepass.org/.

    your teen, or your significant other, seek out a
    GPS-enabled model. This computer software installs discreetly and no matter who is working
    with the fate of the furious streaming cell phone they will not
    detect the cell phone monitoring software installed. Today, I and Bianca have become best friends again.
