My fellow Aling Riders, I am so proud of all of your hard training and fundraising that contributed to the success of this event! Kudos to Marisa & Arlene for sweeping duties and Veronica for leading!
I am so grateful to be surrounded with people that cares, motivates, encourage and inspire!"
"Doing Cycle the Wave was a huge thing for me. It was the first bike event I participated in after just a couple of months in training. I was nervous and at the same time excited to see how I would fare among other seasoned riders. The event was so fun and festive probably because there were a lot of us participating as a team plus we had our family and friends to support us during ride day.
We did the girly girl route which was just about right for us beginners. For me it was hard but doable. During a rest stop, I was asked by one fellow rider if our team raced or competed. I replied, "no, we just do it for fun". That's how I see it, having fun with a common goal of reaching the finish line together. I never felt any sense of competition among the team. The only competition we have is with ourselves, trying to find how much we can stretch our limits.
I am so proud to be part of team Aling. Everyone looks out for each other and that, I think is teamwork at its best."
