I’m in that photo—white haired lady on the only Beemer. ,-)
Samantha, the group leader, took the photo. She is all about having her groups look like they are worshipping the landscape. Hahaha.
This is part of a “Ripple Relay” that is crossing the country three times—all women riders. I carried the baton from SLC to Green River,where I passed it to another rider last weekend. It started in FL, came across the southern states (while it was still cold), then went up the west coast to WA, then through ID, MT, WY, and into UT. It has recently made it to CO, and will soon travel in to OK and then to the east coast.
Meanwhile, there is a RTW trip happening, too. The Ripple Relays got the name from this mother-ship of a relay. It started in the UK and is now in Sweden, I think (?). That baton will be in the US sometime in Oct. They have scheduled an Iron Butt day for when the baton comes closest to me (going from Sturgis to somewhere in WA state), so I don’t think I’ll join in on that one.
