LIOTR Stage 4
After riding over 500 miles in three days, we’re ready for a little recovery. Stage 4 takes us from Ontario, OR and into Boise, ID. Instead of riding 160+ miles as we’ve done for the first three days of the ride, we’ll get to sleep in, clean the bikes, have breakfast and roll out at recovery pace for 60 miles or so. Looking forward to crossing a state line too
Today we ride for Andrew’s cousin, Mary Huber. She is a 45-year old woman with a developmental disability, but also a person with a strong will and the ability to fight. Mary is in the fight of, and for, her life with a particularly aggressive skin cancer. She has lost her left eye to the battle, but has her right eye and great attitude focused on recovery from the surgery and radiation, defeating the disease, and moving on in her good life with her friends in a Honolulu group home(she’s not a surfer, though). She is also looking forward to getting back with her co-workers at Goodwill Industries. She salutes Cousin Andrew and all the crew of Leave it on the Road.
