Ride the Rockies Team, Cycling Along

The devoted cyclists that signed on in March to be ambassadors for Project ReCycle are peddling right along towards the big ride coming up in June. Some of the riders are volunteering for other Project ReCycle events as well.  I caught up with Greg Horstman at The Kickstand in The Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. He volunteered to help move a few hundred bikes to Sedalia Elementary school for the Dream Bike Event on May 2.  “A good rule of thumb for training for The Ride the Rockies is to log in at least 1,000 miles before the ride,” said Greg. He had reached 509 miles so far…. Great job Greg; you’re half way there!  This will be Greg’s fourth time riding the Rockies. Wow-what an accomplishment!

Greg Archunde on Being an Original Board member

Greg Archunde has been with Project ReCycle from the very beginning- where it all started in AJ Stapleton’s garage. “I enjoy being on a bike, I have a love for kids, and AJ’s passion for Project ReCycle is infectious,” said Greg. “It’s been fantastic to see where Project ReCycle started and to watch that growth. We haven’t reached our full potential, but realizing how much we’re already doing is truly inspiring.  Iv’e been through a number of events and a lot of memories- seeing the smiles on the kid’s faces when they get their bike and hearing the stories from the parents and how grateful they are, show what a difference we make. It’s a simple thing that means a lot,” said Greg.
