    Agony Ride? Really? Why? This is often the reaction when I tell people what I’m training for. My answer….why would I not do this and give a young person a chance to turn their life around? This will be my 3rd time to ride in this event, and my gap, this year is to complete 152 miles during the event. Am I up for it? Sure! While last year I completed 105 miles, it just wasn’t the same due to Covid and not being able to be all together and be cheered on by the kids in the program. I’m so looking forward to being back together in Loyalton this year and having the support and encouragement! There is something about riding into a rest stop, in the middle of nowhere, late at night, while people are cheering you on that makes you want to keep going! So, I’ll be back out there again this year! Consider giving to this incredible organization that helps young people turn their life around and gives them a chance at a future! So, if you are looking for me from noon on Friday July 23rd to noon on Saturday July 24th - I will be a little busy busting out those 152 miles. I'm excited to take this on.....and am ready to do it....I think! If you would like to sponsor me, you can go to: Agonyride.org and then search for my name...... Thank you in advance! and if you want to join me for a training ride, just say the word....I have a few miles to ride each weekend to prepare! Joyce

I had the opportunity to participate in this event in 2018 and sadly, had to sit out last year due to my ongoing knee issues....., I couldn’t wait for sign ups to start for this years Agony Ride. The experience of riding a bike and pushing myself in order to help bring long term opportunities to young people is worth every ounce of energy it took to finish the 114 miles. So, this year, I’m aiming to complete 114 miles during the 24 hours of this event.
Giving young people the opportunity to address issues with drugs and alcohol or behavioral issues early in life helps set them up for long term success. One young lady I met in 2018 during the event shared with me that she had completed her high School GED and was enrolled in community college. She was the first in her family to finish her GED - and was looking forward to what opportunities college would bring her!
Please consider helping me reach my goal of raising $1000
