I’m still trying to wrap my head around those two days, but I’m compelled to get these thoughts on paper. Let’s get the adjectives over with right away.

Must be AngelRide Magic

By Eoana Sturges It’s been a cold and rainy spring in Vermont and I just wasn’t feeling the energy on any of my training rides. Even when it warmed enough to take off a layer of insulation and I was hill training I just wasn’t finding my groove. Work and family stuff was particularly challenging …

The Most Amazing Group

By Dana Bean AngelRiders are amazing. They train hard and fundraise. They ride a LOT of hills in whatever weather they can safely manage. Don’t get me wrong, they have a lot of fun doing it.

My Conspiracy Theory

By Lynn McCarthy I’ve been thinking about the good things in my life. Counting my blessings, giving gratitude, and acknowledging the gifts. Call it what you will. It’s a practice. Deepak Chopra reminds me, “Life isn’t good by itself; you must respond to it as good.” What if everyday feels like AngelRide – as though …

Kenny Osborn: AngelRide 2015

By Kenny Osborn In 1988, 250 campers, over the course of a summer, came to experience a different kind of healing. 250. Strangers. Patients. Perhaps away from home for the first time, except for hospital visits that had become frequent enough that they could be called “normal.” 250 who knew discomfort, insecurity, and uncertainty better …

George Bussman’s AngelRide Story

By George Bussman Fred Brooke first told me about Angelride that first year it was held way back in 2004.
