Turns out I am rubbish at ultra riding and blogging about it simultaneously. Go figure!
The ride was hectic and all-consuming. I managed some social media posts, which really helped build some momentum around the fundraising for Cycle for Sight. Smashing my initial goal of $2000, we are now a mere $225 away from reaching $5000 in support of research to treat and cure blinding eye disease! I cannot express my gratitude for all of the support from family, friends, people I met on the trail, and the online community.
If you would like to donate - no amount is insignificant! - here is the Cycle for Sight donation site.
