We are back fresh from Spring Break, ready to tackle our last quarter of the year! As always, we have new walkers, new talkers, new readers. The kiddos have come so far this year, and we plan to enjoy our spring months playing and learning inside and outside. I will also be outside—taking on my fourth Elephant Rock bike ride, raising funds for Rise. This year, I decided not to drag my mountain biking team down anymore, and am registered for the 27-mile course. Believe me when I say that if you are even slightly inclined to participate, there is a course for you! The 8-mile “Family Ride” is full of riders of all abilities, and is easy and fun. If you’re up for more of a challenge, try the 27, 40, 62, or 100-mile course. No matter what course you choose, there will be Rise friends, cold beverages and good cheer waiting for you at the finish!
