First off, I want to apologize for the week long delay in posts… After we got to L.A., and had our finish line event, our minds and bodies shut down. Waking up at 5:30 everyday for three months takes it toll on you when you’re biking 80 miles a day, and we all just couldn’t muster the mental energy to write even a quick blog.
We got to L.A. on Saturday, and our official “ride in” event was scheduled for Sunday in Santa Monica. We leisurely biked our last 5 miles to a seaside park in Santa Monica where we were met by a small group of friends, family, and supporters.
The event wasn’t as well attended as we had hoped, but as we’ve found out, it’s just tough to drum up support in big cities for a cause that’s too often on the fringes of social thought. We were elated though, to have the group that we did, and BIG HUGE thank you to Tina & Cesar Maciel, and Tom Rios for helping us organize a perfect L.A. ride in. We got to reunite with D2L supporter and filmmaker Angela Shelton, as well as Nickolodeon star Challen Cates and her family.
We’re working on a few more blogs which will trickle in over the next few weeks, so be sure and stay posted! We’ll be posting all of our entries to Facebook and Twitter, so if you want an easy way to stay in touch, join our social media networks!
