We're behind you all the way, Ted. May God give you strength and endurance!! Love, "Aunt" Sue and "Uncle" Tree
Silly Ted...good talk. See ya out there.
Go, Ted, Go!
Ted, Thank you for your hard work training and now riding! I will be praying for your safety and strength for the ride. Go Ted! Aunt Becky
Grateful for your faithfulness Ted. Praying the bike ride is better than the car ride!
If you don't die this year, let's do it together next year.
You just biked basically from my house to my parents house, across almost the whole state of Wyoming.
WELL DONE! You have earned the right to sleep all the way home! Thanks!
Well done sir, well done!!! Hope you are still alive.
PR is so close! 351?
90 more minutes to go!
You've got this, Ted!! Go, go, go!!! So proud of you!!! Praying for strength and endurance. He's there riding with you!!
Can’t believe that you haven’t stopped for more than 10 minutes! I bet it is all a blur by now! Praying for strength and the Hand of God on your shoulder as you peddle for the youth.
300!!! Getting close and costing me more money. Feel free to rest now.
Ted, Ted, he’s the man, if he can’t do it…. I certainly can’t. Looks like it is about time for me to start doing math. You are looking good for 350!
Is this going to be another situation where you end up taking dar more money from us than we were prepared for? When I heard about your chiropractor issue, I was debating lowering the mileage I started supporting you at. I'm glad I didn't fall for your evil trick. Keep pedaling! You're doing great and making a difference for these kids.
Whoa!!!! You guys smoked that last leg.!! Almost 20mph!! (If my usually faulty arithmetic is right!)...... at any rate, you killed it! Keep on, going! You're dong great!
You made it through the night! Proud of you! Keep up the good work. 💕
No matter how you spell it....... there are no eye de ten tees in this race! Only hache eee are ohs! (Probably emphasis on the hache or is it ache!)
Reading your messages I just realized it should have been EKPR rather than EKSR. Good thing you are way better at riding a bike than we are at spelling. You’re about to start taking money from Austin - keep up the good work and tell Jonathan if he didn’t send thank you notes like you don’t they wouldn’t always be late.
First of all, we prayed for you at the dinner table last night, our kids are inspired by you and also confused why riding a bike until you are in a lot of pain helps kids know about Jesus. 😂 I’m praying for strength, especially for your butt and calf. Keep going!! You’re amazing!!!
Yay!! Keep on keeping on!! You're going great guns!! Whew, the dark is gone and so will be the dark in the kids' lives as they realize the Light of the world and what He can do for them. Keep riding! Jesus and the kids appreciate you and your work.
Why did the chicken cross the road and keep heading on out of California? To get away from Ted and his bike
228 miles! That’s wonderful!!!!!
Went for a light jog this morning and ended up dodging a skunk and running through several neighbors yards at 0430. Thankfully the cops weren’t called on me and the skunk didn’t spray me. Hopefully you don’t have to dodge any skunks or cops. Sun should be coming up soon. Keep drinking and don’t stop. Still praying.
Impressive. You are right on track to hit your mileage goal. Hang in there.
Good morning, Ted! It's about 7:30 here in NC. As soon as I woke up I looked up your progress in CA. You've done amazing so far!
Good morning, Ted! It may seem like the middle of the night but sunrise is fast coming! You are doing great! I would make about 5 miles and then need CPR! Praying for strength and stamina! Go with God’s help!
Great work!! Riding hard, so you’ll probably act like an eye de ten tee when this is done!!! Can’t wait to see the Marco Polo! 😄🤣
200 miles! Keep it up. Enjoy the cool before the sun comes back. Still praying
Ted!!! I’m so proud of you! Love you tons and will continue prayers❤️. You’ve got this. 😊
Up now and praying. Thank you for the privilege of praying for you, Ted. You are amazing! I appreciate you!
Remember when you had a flat tire and we had to postpone our climb of Evans? We got caught in a freezing cold rain storm, and nearly froze to death on the descent? Here's hoping your ride is going better than that one did.
When I was in labor, there were a few hours where I believed time had stopped and I was stuck in the pain forever—that it would actually never end. I asked, “How long?? How much longer??” And Nate would respond, “One more contraction at a time.” It was a little irritating, but it ended up helping me to hear that—helped me to just focus on the moment and trust God with the next moment. I pray that He will help you endure.
You're doing great! I'm so glad it's you and not me on a bike all night -- I'm very serious about that. Great work! I'll keep asking God to strengthen you and use you.
Way to go, Ted! You are movin'!! Glad Jonathan can ride with you in the night. Answer to prayer, eh? Keep it up!
Just took my first turn praying for you and the other riders. Keep at it, you have a very solid start. As you head into the night, "he who keeps you will not slumber." Ps. 121:3.
Where are my pictures??!! Oh Right, I haven't paid yet...
Praying for you as you ride this night. Thank you for caring enough to put the youth above your comfort. Go Ted!
GO TED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!°°°!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!¡!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You're doing great, Ted!! Praying for you!! Hang in there. God's got this with you riding for Him!!
Hey Ted!!! Super exciting that you are doing this again! I can't even imagine! You got this! Keep it up! You have lots of people cheering and praying you on. Good Luck Cousin! Carol
101. Keep it up. Praying for you.
it’s impressive how well your are doing especially knowing about your nerve issue. I love you and am praying for you. Grandma is too!
Phew. Just finished my workout. Took nearly a WHOLE hour. I better relax the rest of the evening. I wonder what Ted is up to...
Wow Ted! that wind is no joke and you are killing it!
You’ve started strong-tell Jonathan hi.
Goooooooooooo Ted!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is all.
Oh, yeah. Oooh, Aaah. That's how it always starts. Then later there's screaming... and chafing.
