Atlas 4000 Ride
On Saturday, June 5, I joined a few other Team in Training teammates and rode in the Atlas 4000 Ride. The Atlas 4000 ride is the first stage of a 4000 mile ride from Austin, Texas to Alaska. Students from the University of Texas raise money to help cancer research and train for the ride which will take 70 days. The first day of the ride is open to any rider willing to pay the entrance fee and it is a point-to-point ride from Austin to Lampassas. It was the first point-to-point ride I've done, but worth it. We ended up with 70 miles of riding and the final stop was at a winery, so we got to do a little wine tasting. That's a nice way to end a ride.
