Three weeks out from the ride, I guess I'd better commit.
This year has contained lots of great things for the Palmer Family, which didn't exactly translate to being organized and trained for the Agony Ride.
I have a base level of fitness and no good excuses though - so here goes. Thank you to all of you who continue to sponsor me, even as I've utterly failed to continue sending thank you notes. Let's blame that failure on my kids. Seems fair.

So glad you get to see me this year! 😉 Be great my friend! Always so inspired by you!
Good luck Jonathan!!
To one of my favorite agony riders! Strength for today, and a bright hope for tomorrow!
I want to encourage you to push yourself
Wish we could join you. Maybe next year! Happy riding!
Good luck with your ride.
On behalf of Owens Estate and Wealth Strategies Group, we are honored to sponsor Jonathan on his 2021 Agony Ride. Good luck, Jonathan!
Jesus bless you Jonathan!
Go get ‘em Jon!!!!
So happy to help sponsor you, Jonathan! ❤️ We love the work being done at the ranch. Praying it may continue to bless young people for many years to come as they find their way in life, all while building that life on a foundation of faith and love.
Go, Jonathan!!!! So happy to support you and this ministry!!!
Good Luck Jonathan!!
You're a freak! Go get them Jonathan.
Good luck, Jonathan!
Nothing from 0-325. $10/mile every mile over 325. We're betting on your "lack" of training.
Go hustle for a change!
Should be a piece of cake after tackling Everest, right? 😉
Go for it!
You gotta earn it this year...
Glad to participate in this small way. You’ve got the much harder job!!
Get that freight train roll'n Palmer!
Go get 'em, Jonathan! From one underprepared athlete to another, you got this!!
Go Jonathan! You got this. Way to keep on keeping on.
You are awesome Jonathan! We’re rooting for you! No thank you note expected, FYI. And blaming the state of life on the kids is fully legit and truthful. It means you have your priorities straight! Keep doing what you’re doing.
This way the math will be easier and you can focus more on riding, less on calculations. If you break the mileage record you know who to thank
Always impressed by your commitment to these projects. Enjoy the agony!
OMG this is so easy for you!!
Go Jonny go!
Thanks for riding!
Go Get It!
The random distant relative still got more of my money, but you at least get some.
Looking good. Almost half way! 🤣👍🏻😎
Praying for you! Blessings, Bill & Marigold
OKAY FINE. Enjoy your nice round number.
Jonathan. I am always in awe of your willingness to put yourself in agony so that young adults and teens can find healing in love and jesus. Love you.
Congratulations on another excellent year.
Great job Jonathan. Thanks for the opportunity to sponsor you and giving us the opportunity to support this noble cause.
Thats a good day! Congratulations

Almost done!! You've got this!
You’re absolutely crushing this!! You guys are awesome
You are KILLING IT! Only 45 minutes left. You’ve got this!
Great job Jonathan, keep it up!
All three Autometrix guys on the top of the leaderboard YES!!
Looks like you're "smelling the barn"! Keep up the great work!
Wish I was there riding with you guys. Keep moving, the time is short. God will keep your legs strong and motivation secure. Stay focused on your goal.
Looks like you're being smart and avoiding the traffic control that Jenn told us about. Here's a "funny" to push you on: "Egyptian babies didn't know that one day their daddy would become a mummy! Neither did the Kardashians!" (Don't know whether you should laugh or cry!) Keep at it! You're doing an amazing ride! And making a difference in our crazy world! We love you and are so, so proud of you!
You changed your path! Smoke issues, I assume? Hope you're doing OK. I'm praying for you. You're amazing! I love you.
go go go dad i bet you r looking frrd to your nap i love you
Good job, Daddy. Keep up the hard work. I love you and keep on working. From Abby 🤩
Amazing job, love of my life. Hang in there. You are making a difference.
Dada. Eh. Dada. Dada. *Grin* (This one's legit)
Good morning! Amazing night! Keep it up! You're almost at the finish line!
You had a great night. Well done! In about 45 minutes you'll get to watch the sun come up as the moon is going down. Enjoy! Dad
Praying for you in the early hours of this morning. May God strengthen you and help you and hold you up. Thanks for your passion and love for the students and the Ranch. What you are doing is amazing!!!!
You're doing an amazing ride! Keep putting one foot in front of the other! Think of the kids you're helping. We're so proud of you!
Dada! Dada! BAAAAHHHH! BAAAAHHHH! (Ok, not really. I'm putting words in his mouth. He's asleep right now. But if he were awake, this is totally what he'd say.)
I love you. You're amazing. You've got this.
You are looking unbelievably consistent! And it looks like you've got a group that's riding well together. So glad! Looking forward to hearing your stories! Keep it up!
Love you bud. And I'm immensely proud of you. Hang in there.
‘You wil rise up up with wings like eagles. You will (ride) and not be weary., you will will walk ans not faint…’ go get those miles brother
"The hardest part is starting" -some dumb@*# who never rode an Agony I admire your faithfulness
Heard from Jenn that you're dealing with smoke. So sorry. Hang in there. Hope you can still see and enjoy the beauty of tonight's moon! Praying for you.
"Though the sorrow may last for the night, joy comes with the morning!" Remember: the joy the students will find at the Ranch through your sacrifice, and the joy in heaven when they realize and accept that your love and suffering tonight reflects the love and suffering of Christ on their behalf makes it all worth it! Keep it up! Praying for you! Eric, Nicole, & kids
Dear Jonathan, I remember it all. I remember those moments of quick jokes that would get us students out of the dumps. I remember those communion meditations that would leave me soul searching in a chair during Sundays in the lodge. I remember Friday night lodges, and I even remember the way that you and Jen fought for a child who needed a home and family. I remember the way again and again you poured out your heart. Yet one thing I remember most, is this, each year seeing you out there, your tired face, your glazed over eyes, and sore body, climbing, pedaling, moving forward for the sake of one more student. Once I was one of those students, today you fight for even more. Each year your love inspires me. Each year I watch and go out and fight to love kids too. So this year when it seems you can't move anymore, keep pedaling Jonathan, I know and pray God gives you the strength to show even one more student the love of God. Jackie
Way to go Jonathan. You’re an inspiration.
Looking amazing! Hope you're still feeling good ... as good as you can on the Agony! :-) It's looking like a perfect evening for a ride! Keep staying alert and safe!
Through the worst of the heat. I love you. You're amazing.
Come on ride faster! Haha!! 😆 You are doing great! Keep it up.
You're looking strong. We wish we were there to hug you on this time through Loyalton! Pretend we're there to cheer you on!
Even if, for you, this year's Agony is like going to the dentist, thank you for putting yourself through it!!! After enduring momentary discomfort (haha) you'll have invested in the health of the Ranch and in the lives of those teens who may not understand your sacrifice, but will benefit from it for life. You are awesome and we love you. Just keep riding!
Keep up the good work, Daddy! I love you.
Good job, Daddy! Go, go, go. I love you.
Love you. Proud of you.
Stay strong out there and glad to see one of the Palmer brothers riding away!
One loop down! Hope you're doing well. Sure are proud of you!
