Mark Erson - Rider # 212

Smart Ride 18 is completed!  And it was an amazing experience.  A pop up community of caring was created. Friendships were made.  And over 1.2 million dollars was raised.

With all that, how could I not sign up for Smart Ride 19 set for November 2022.  I'm back on my bike.  The training begins again.

I ride for my husband Scott and all those courageous ones who continue to live with HIV/AIDS.
I ride for those who are no longer with us.  We will not forget you.
I ride for those who are being diagnosed and are feeling alone.
I ride for those who, with education, will stay safe and negative.
I ride for those who feel that they are in this challenge alone.  You are not.
I ride because the organizations who are recipient of these funds raised are doing amazing work.

But that is only part of the preparation.  To make the biggest impact, I need you to join me.

My bike and I will do the miles.  You do your part and together we will be part of a great thing. Thank you for riding with me in spirit.

Thank you!!!
