What a journey this has been - participating in the 2022 California Coast Classic Bike Tour was more challenging and rewarding than I ever imagined possible. It changed me in more ways than one. I made lifelong friends and will carry their stories in my heart. It motivated me to work harder than ever to continue making a difference. I am proud, I am grateful, and my heart is full with joy! Thanks to everyone who makes this event possible!
