I’m looking forward to my fifteenth ride this year and as I read about all of the flooding in the midwest I started to wonder what the impact will be on my ride this year. And the more I thought about it the more I felt ashamed that I was more concerned about my vacation than the impact of the flooding on all of the people that live there. Aside from making a concerted effort to support local individuals and local vendors, especially in heavily impacted areas, is there anything else that I, or we as a community, can do to help? Let’s be honest,we are going to be a burden when we ride through or near flooded areas. Ideas?
