I talked with Suzi, one of the captains for Team Billy. She was so encouraging and supportive. For the past few months I have been doing this all on my own. Now it was so nice to have other people who I could reach out to for help, guidance, and advice. And Suzi said she could help me get a new tire for my bike a lot sooner than 2 weeks! And the other thing she told me was how important it is to cross train. I had never thought of it before, but Suzi said that when she hiked it actually helped her to be a better rider. Well, that made me feel good. So now, even though my bike had a flat tire, I could still train for the CCC.
