We put in 107 miles from Taylor to Navasota, Texas. 3k feet total climbing.
As you may remember, I rode with Chance last spring and his daughter was born 13 years ago with biliary atresia and got a liver transplant. She won her first swim competition today!
Chance and I were roommates last night and again tonight.
There wasn’t an official event today but 2 eventful things happened.
1. The LSCOL bike tour had 2 organ recipients ride over 100 miles miles on the same day.
Both gals could have easily finished with no help, but as we wanted to finish before dark, a little extra speed on the hills helped guarantee a daylight finish.
2. We also had 3 living donors finish the ride.
Todd, Jennifer, and I, along with many other living donors, demonstrate all the time that a person can donate an organ, quite literally saving someone’s life, and then continue on living a normal life, whatever that may be.
