Sorry I missed your call-back yesterday. I just wanted to add that the NAC is hosting the third annual Summit Challenge bike ride on August 28th. I’m bummed this didn’t make your list last weekend. We are one of few races to offer three different rides that can allow for access from families to competitive racers on 15, 50 & 100-mile courses. The Summit Challenge is also one of few rides where individuals with various disabilities participate side-by-side with able-bodied peers. This ride is run by a huge crew of volunteers and all of the proceeds go directly to the National Ability Center. I feel we should have been included in your list, and I hope that you will add this to the calendar for future years. More information can be found at
