Finished our goal of 112. Thankful for a safe ride and the family and friends who came out to SAG for us.
The last 20 miles have been the most beautiful through downtown Spokane! Getting close
The winds still in our face. We are hoping that once we get to the end of the trail, it’ll help push us home. Over half way to our goal!!! Here’s a little motivation for the last 50. Another great reason to be in WA!
wind sucks. 19 miles and now back in Washington. beautiful though. here’s my skis from the last post. we are now further then Trevor has ever been. all safe and taking a break.
feeling good! just finished our first rest stop. 1 almost crash and 1 almost dead wiener dog. But all is well. heading out now. although I miss the valley. this views not too bad!
It’s time!!!! getting started now! Follow along here for updates
Thanks for your donations to the Ranch! Your gifts go a long way in continuing the mission of Christian Encounter: Overcoming the cycles of brokenness, one story at a time.

Good luck, Austin...
Hey Aus - Once again, you got this!!!☺😇♥;-)
Hope you have another great ride Austin! Love, Aunt Terri
Good luck Austin! We’ll be praying!
Good luck Austin! We are rooting for you!
Austin! You're back at it again! Although the ride looks a little different this year, you guys are still serving the same mission with a unified voice. It may just be you, Trevor, and whoever else is riding with you guys, but remember there are hundreds of other riders with you in this journey. When it gets tough, keep going. You may not have the physical support of last year, but you have a ton of other riders going through similar adversities as you. You and all the riders are in this together. And remember, you are leading those around you during this ride. To show them how awesome it is to be apart of CER and to support the mission. The easy road would have been to call off doing the agony ride this year. But you chose to ride anyways. God will bless you and those you are riding with for your commitment to serving His Kingdom. Love you man!
You got this bro! Super proud of you and thanks for working so hard!
Go go go!
Thanks for all that you have done for Olivia, for letting her use your car and especially for the road trip. May God bless you.
AMAZING RIDING AUSTIN! Hope Spokane has nice weather for you!!! You got this agony ride!!!!
Yay so proud of you!!
Hope the rest of the ride goes well! Cheering you on from Kansas! Love you! Ian and Bethany
Great job - thanks for riding for Agony
Thanks for being awesome.
John 19:30 Matthew 25:21 Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Whether you're home or in the home stretch, THANKS!!!
if this was (normal?) Agony, you're halfway there. well, just starting, resting, riding or done - THANKS You're helping to show kids who don't believe anyone cares that you do
Mission accomplished ! 🙂 My wife has all the witty quotes, I’ll just say “Enjoy your rest!” Thanks for giving your all.
I thought of the most appropriate quote for Agony! "I survived but I paid for it...." You're a champ, Austin. Way to fight for the students.
Austin: ha that’s the best! only going out for 11 tonight but it’s in honor of Michael. got Hamilton cheering me on. I am not throwing away my shot
It's getting dark here in Grass Valley. If you're riding through the night, be careful and stay safe. You are awesome!
Dang Austin, back at it again with the Agony ride! (it's a meme, ask Paxton if u don't know). You're doing great 👍!!! You already know that what you're doing makes such a huge difference, but I want to remind you that if it wasn't for fundraising events like this one, I couldn't have afforded to be a student at the Ranch, so we would never have met and I wouldn't be the so very cool person I am today! Thank you for going that extra mile! You're awesome!!!
Way to look out for for your fellow man. Be safe riding and driving back. 🙂
Great job Austin! Although your page says your goal is 123 and you have several more hours, so ..... Just Saying :)
Austin: well my brother in laws goal was 112. he’s pretty gassed so I didn’t think it’d be a good idea to just take off and do 11 more. I’m going to go out after dinner later tonight. and it will all be for you.
You got this Austin!! Youâre almost done, if you need a song to sing while you ride I highly suggest the one about the blue jay...Iâll start it off for you! Way down south but not far away....
Austin: I hate that. I’m done but just catching up on the messages.
Hope your ride is going well. Pain is temporary.
Well, with the virtual format, you could be anywhere in your ride. We're all praying for you that it's going well and so grateful for your support. Stay safe!!
I'd send you some frozen grapes if I could. Also, the house is cleaner.
Austin: great to know!!!! wish o had grapes.
Thonks for riding this year! and I solemnly swear I am not a robot
You go!!! Don't let the Mormons win. Almost there.... Keep those miles ticking. We love you.
You are doing awesome! Love your picture during break with your support er!! You've got this!! ❤️❤️
Just keep pedaling..... Keep at it! Looking forward to hearing about what your learning and how God is molding you through this experience again. We are praying for the ranch and all the funds that will benefit the ministry that takes place!
He's a cutie, alright .. but enough hugs! Get on that bike! ;) Way to go, you're rocking it!
Austin: I’m pretty sure you said that same thing last year when we were lagging in loyalton
Look around, look around, at how lucky we are to be alive right now! Talk less. Pedal more. :)
Austin: oh it’s been stuck in my head for sure. my group all has air pods in except me. luckily I know every word! I tried starting from the beginning in my head but didn’t make it too far...
GO Austin! We are rooting and praying for you!
Austin! Good to hear you avoided a crash and a wiener dog. I’m partial to those little rascals. Praying that you’ll continue to avoid all crashes and have God’s radar guiding you Marilyn
"No crashes allowed"! Elise "Encouragement"-Wes "Good job"- Joseph "Remember who your sustainer is." - Maren "You can do it!" - Kathleen "Ride or..." -Ada That's our whole van
