OK here is your official invite, if we get a critical mass, then food and recovery beer on patio after ride. 

My fellow bikers and friends:
The date is fast approaching I should have sent you all this email sooner. My apologies, but Barrington will be hosting the Honor Ride again this year on Sunday August 14th. 
It's pretty humbling see a wounded vet with a prosthetic arm or leg (or both) riding in this fund raiser. I'd encourage you to consider joining this ride.  Like most of these organized rides, it is for a great cause. 
The link to sign up on my team is below.  Honor Ride created a coupon code called BACH for $10 off the registration costs. This is always well organized and a lot of fun. 
The ride starts/ends at Citizen's Park in Barrington, same as last time.  TBD, but I live close to the park and we might end up there post ride for some food and carbs (i.e. beer). Thanks all.  Link below:
Really hope you can join. Would love to see you & please, feel free to invite others and extend the coupon code.  For less serious bikes the 20 mile route is easy, would take just 2 hours at a 10 mph leisurely pace.  You could even do that on a mountain bike.

Route Options

All routes are subject to change. Final queue sheets will be available the morning of the ride.

I echo what Ron says great ride great cause. I have a team forming when you sign up use the discount code (BACH)  and you save 10% off the ride. 

Please consider signing up. Three years ago I rode with a triple amputee who was injured by an IED. Recumbent bike pedaled with his arms and the Honor Ride folks made him a carbon fiber sleeve for his left arm which was a below elbow amputation. 

He did the long route and was a stud. Quite the motivation and organization.
