This is the second year the Seeing Eye Puppy Raisers Team will be participating in the Gran Fondo.
A few of our members are on their third year, but as a team we are on our second year.
We started out as a group of people wishing to raise money for a wonderful organization, The Seeing Eye, and we ended up becoming a group of great friends. There have been many training rides to get us to the point of completing the Gran Fondo ride. In the end, each and every one of us finished! We have continued training through-out the colder months by taking spin classes at Nitro Cycle – WOW! What we have gained is a much healthier group of riders, and a few of us are stepping up their ride to the next level. Stop by each member’s page to see their personal goals.
Hopefully, along with our increase in miles, we will be able to increase the funds raised for The Seeing Eye as well. Remember, they are the reason we are out on the road, all that healthy stuff is just bonus!
