ALC 11: Video Interviews Chris and Gary

Posted on

Chris and Gary are a couple from Ventura who participated on the ride together this year. Chris has been on the ride five times, and Gary this once. Gary was a roadie…a group of excellent individuals who volunteer to support the riders by providing all the services needed to keep everyone safe, fed, and watered for all seven days.

For 2200 riders, there were about 500 roadies. That means the ride requires its own mini city, schlepping the copious stuff from camp to camp — including about ten tractor trailers with showers, kitchens, and gear, huge tents which become cafeteria, commissary, and medic station, and all the rider’s gear. Plus, every 20 miles or so on the ride is an amazing set of rest stops with snacks, water, and Gatorade — and all staffed with volunteers.

Roadies, I thank you!
