Pan Ohio Ride of Hope

Did anyone here do the Pan Ohio Ride of Hope? It was a great ride. Cleveland to Cincinnati. We raised 750,000 dollars.

No but I did do three days of RAGBRAI last week and what a hoot! My team of three was aged 49, 59, and 60 (me). I stood in an ice cream line behind a 73 year old who was on his seventh complete RAGBRAI and he did the first one after having a stroke and being told he might not walk so well anymore! And then there was the 85 year old woman who was chugging up hill after hill just like the rest of us. RAGBRAI is not a charity event per se but we reportedly spend $2.4 million/day in the aggregate and a lot of that goes to organizations selling food and supplies to use the profits for charitable work. Any time you can combine a good ride with charity everyone wins so congratulations!
