Ride the Rockies Cyclists Team up for Project ReCycle

Wade Haufschild and a few other devoted cyclists have formed a team for Ride the Rockies come June of this year. This team will serve as ambassadors for Project ReCycle. It will be Wade’s third year riding the rockies and his friend Greg’s fourth ride. Wade’s wife has also joined the team and some other friends have joined as well. Wade was introduced to AJ Stapleton through a friend of his.  He recently ran into AJ and they spoke about Ride the Rockies, “We need a team for Project ReCycle,” AJ told Wade.  And that’s how it all got started. Wade and his friend Greg learned the first year, that if you don’t enter as a team, only one of you may get in. Read more

It was cancelled last year and wasn’t going to happen this year either but, Linda decided the “Tony’s” ride needed to be continued…. so thank you Linda for putting together this new event! Read more
