Ken will be available to all riders during this period for treatment, advice, taping and maybe a hug if you need one… you are about to cycle one thousand miles after all...
Let’s get to know Ken a little better…
TALBAR: What’s for breakfast?

TALBAR: Life quote?
KW: Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
