It’s almost impossible to believe that it’s been 16 years since the fateful day known as 9/11 occurred. Arguably the world is a very different place and one in which that same fear that manifested on September 11, 2001 still lingers, often amplified by a seemingly never ending sequence of horrible events. But that is just perception. And perception can be changed. That is why we ride. We ride to remember but we also ride to forget. This year as we passed both landmarks and overlooked nooks of this magnificent city on our way to 100 miles, we created our own reality, one built on appreciation, cooperation and love. THIS IS WHY WE RIDE! Please join us on our journey in film by Craig Wetherby as we present the 8th Annual Bridgerollers x TheGoodLife! 2017 100 Mile 9/11 Tribute Roll. Words by Tim Brodhagen.
