Why We Do It

...



I've been riding my trike out on the trail lately, trying to prepare for a very hilly 25 mile ride. Very soon we'll be doing the BORP Revolution ride. So far it's been hard to feel ready for the physical challenge. Some days are easier than others when it comes to hitting the trail and putting in the miles. I've even entertained the idea of switching to the much easier 10 mile ride.




On reflection, removing the physical challenge has no appeal for me but there would be one very good reason for riding the 10 mile course: we would be with most of the people we're doing this for.




We hope that some of our blog readers will support us, as we raise money to provide fun recreational activities for people with disabilities!

(This is a shameless re-blog from two years ago. But, hey, who's got time to write when there's last minute training to do!)

The bionic exoskeleton. Yes! I was so happy to see this coming in out in civilian form. There are several companies right now vying for military contracts for this technology.

I'm hoping that there will be a sport version of this in a few years which will enable people like me to run.
