Today marked the kick-off to what should be an amazing 10 days. Most of the riders have arrived, and we drove together to Ngurdoto Lodge, where we are staying the night before the official send off tomorrow. The group seems great and is very excited with anticipation after months of preparation.

I?ll leave you with a couple images of the student rider, Richard Augustino. The Foundation For Tomorrow held an essay contest to determine which of their scholarship students would get to participate in the ride. Richard, who is also at the top of his class at Usa River Academy, won the contest, and we are all very excited to have him as part of the group.

Here he is at the end of a long training ride with TFFT?s summer intern, Becca, who is also a rider.

Looking forward to tomorrow!
