Thank you RoadID!

We would like to thank RoadID for improving the safety of our trip. They donated two ankle ID tags with our medical and contact information so that if anything happens to us the rescuers know what to do and whom to call. Thank you!

Due to popular request to post some pictures, we are now posting pictures from some of our training rides. They were talken by Marcel unless Marcel is in it, in which case Lev took it and if we're both in it then the fence post took it for us (ie. self-timer!).
