Thanks to my sponsor Enfo (that is also one of the main sponsorsÂ of Ride of Hope) I had this amazing experienceÂ Last yearÂ together with Ride of Hope and already before I had left them I had decided that I wanted to come back next year, and the year after that and so on…
Unfortunately I will not be there this year because of my tight schedule:(
And as I’m writing this now they have probably just arrived the hotel in LinkÃ¶ping after their 155km between Ã–rebro-LinkÃ¶ping that was today’s stage. I talked to Billy (one of the initiator of the organisation) this morning and the rain was pouring down as they left Ã–rebro… “They only get wet one time and we are doing this for the kids” he said and he had to say no more! I understood and I really wished that I was there with them, riding the kilometers for the kids!
Ride of Hope is a race where everyone that starts has the same goal and the fact that you are riding your bike for someone else makes it soÂ special. To ride for life and to collect money for the childrencancerfoundation is something that has to be experienced!
There is 9 stagesÂ withÂ a total of 1250km, and you can choose whether you want to do them all or just one.
To start you donate 200 SEK per stage to the foundation.Â But of course you don’t have to join the “race” to donate, here you can find the website for donations.
I miss you all my Ride of Hope friends and I wish you all some really nice last 4Â days and I’m sure that the sun will start to shine on you soonÂ just like it is shining on the kids!
