I just received the DVD that was produced by the organizers of the '06 Moab Skinny Tire Festival for the rider participants as a way to thank them for their participation. The festival is sponsored by the LAF and their cause "to inspire and empower people with cancer to live strong". It's a powerful grassroots movement and the DVD gave me a moment to once again take pause for reflection.

Most any cause out there today is a very worthy cause. In addition to the support of whatever cause each participant is helping to build, I believe it also helps strengthen our humanity and create a bond of love and peace that is so lacking in our world today.

I have ridden numerous times for pediatric AIDS, a cause that hits right inside the core of my family. If you have ridden the Triple Bypass, then you've helped to support that cause too. Thanks.

To those of you who ride for a cause, I salute you!
