In Support of Relay For Life, What's Not To Love

Our family have been supporters & participants of Relay for Life ever since our son Zac was in high school, he & his friends put together a team, & then a few years later his brother when he too was in high school performed with his band at the Woodstock Fair Grounds where the event is held the third weekend of May, rain or shine, each & every year.

This year the support in this neck of the woods is no different from other years, though a cycling segment had been added. As in years past the example set by our sons, of their community involvement, & now this year their dad/my husband was to take part, as he was off this morning at 8AM with his group of bike riding friends from the cycling group, QV Velo

I was told that two riding groups went out, one for a 25 mile ride of about seven cyclists, & the other, of approximately forty riders, & they did 50 miles. All the participants this morning registered & paid a fee to be part of the event, so what's not to love. Generosity, kindness, caring & physical fitness in a really cool green sport!


The cyclists above are riding for Relay for life of Northeast Connecticut, & are from the Quinebaug Valley Velo Club. This morning at 8AM they left on their trek right out of downtown Danielson, Ct.
