The Vermont 100/200 Ride – Combining a love for biking and raising money for some great charities!
On Saturday, June 23, 2018, a team of four cyclists and one support person, participated in the Vermont 100/200 bike ride. That team consisted of cyclists Brian Goshow, Adam Martin, Mike Covais, and Mike Rowe, along with the support person Rebecca Golding, who provided nutrition, gear, and spirited enthusiasm.
This ride is one of the hardest one-day rides in America. Starting at the Canadian Border on Route 100 in Vermont, and ride the entire length of the state to the Massachussetts Border. With a distance of 215 miles and over 14000ft of vertical climbing, this year’s ride provided some of the most difficult conditions; 15 mph head winds and 43 degree, rainy weather proved to be an epic challenge, but all completed the challenging ride!
Early in the planning stages of the ride, the team decided to leverage their monumental physical effort to raise funds for charities they felt strongly about. With a goal of $5000, each of the team members identified one organization to collectively fundraise and divide the funds evenly between. New England Disabled Sports was chosen as one of the five charities, by Rebecca Golding (owner of local businesses, Peaked Moon & Udderly Delicious…if you are in the Lincoln, NH area, please stop by and check out their delicious goodies). We are so grateful to have been chosen and to receive such an amazing donation of $1260.20 to help us continue to Break Boundaries in the adaptive world!
Thank you all for your efforts! Much appreciated!
