I’m riding. It is hot 102 but not Smokey. Thank you for supporting my ride and the CER students. They’ve been awesome in supporting us riders. Cooling off my hot head.
Thank you for sponsoring my ride and the CER students in the last few days before the ride. It's been a chaotic week with my mom falling and now in a nursing home to recover. Please pray for fires to be extinguished, air to be smoke free, our legs and hearts to be stregthened to keep riding & we all keep God in our (riders, saggers, staff, interns & students) hearts. And please pray for my mom to heal fast. I know God listens and answers our prayers. He has helped keep me safe in the past Agony Rides when I could have been seriously injured and in so many other areas of my life.
Thank you for sponsoring my ride and the CER students. It's been a crazy busy year; Is life ever going to calm down? Am I ready? It wouldn't be AGONY if I was ready. I've been spinning and am going for one last ride on Tuesday. I probably shouldn't say, but my last ride a couple of weeks ago was the 3rd ride since last year. I got a late start and lots of practice riding in the heat (100+). I am a little concerned because I could feel my bottom and shoulders a little than I should have for only 43 miles. :-) Drinking lots of water, no caffeine. I will have coffee to help energize my riding and not fall asleep on my bike. I've been praying for no fires and cooler weather. It's supposed to be under 100 (97) degrees. I will do my best to ride as many miles. I appreciate your encouragement and faith in these CER students. Their lives are worthwhile.---Grace
Yes!!! I am riding the 2022 Agony Ride in the Sierra Valley with everyone.
Why go the extra mile for AGONY Ride and CER? Life can be tough. Youths, with or without love and support, can make bad choices that lead to a hard and rocky path. CER accepts youths on that tough, broken & lonely path, gives them strict rules, teaches about Christ and helps them figure out how to turn their lives around to become a productive and caring person in our community. CER accepts youths from all over and go beyond just helping thru the tough high school years by helping them along thru a career path or college. CER also has interns that work and live with the students. It's not an easy job and God works on their lives also as they learn, grow and care for the students.
Let's show these youths that we care and give them reasons to stick with the CER program and work on their physical, mental, academic and spiritual well-being.
Please sponsor these youths and my ride, either with a flat pledge or a pledge per mile. As I ride, it's these students and interns that encourage and support the riders. While I ride and you sponsor, we prove to them that they are loved and their lives are worthwhile. Please pray that there are no fires and smoke while we train and during the 2022 ride.
Thank you for your support, prayers and encouragement
