Chainge the World Bike Ride - Refuge International

Rider Comments

First of all, I was not able to make the ride this year due to some last minute changes. I truly missed the ride as it is the ride to kick off my summer bike riding…It is the best kept secret regarding bike rides and your efforts deserve a lot of success!"
