Cancer in isolation is unthinkable, with family and friends it is bearable and with a community, you believe it is something you can beat. Thank you to all 2016 Granite State Quest participants for your commitment to conquering cancer, and congratulations on your ride.
We thank you again for participating in this year’s GSQ and we hope you had as much fun as we did. More than once we heard someone say “you know, I enjoyed this more than those hot days.” When coming upon a couple of riders at the beach thinking they might need some assistance, their reply was “no, we are just enjoying the view.”
One of our favorite parts of the ride is the start when you can look forward and see the long flow of riders heading towards the beach – symbolizing the need and importance of a community mobilized to eliminate the terrible sting of cancer. The post ride BBQ is also a favorite, as friends, families, volunteers, alumni riders and new riders all come together for a wonderful celebration of accomplishment. Despite huffing and puffing and perhaps a few sore muscles, the middle of the ride is enjoyable as well.
With deep thanks and appreciation,
Bruce, Bonnie, Nancy, Susan, Frank, Greg, Bob and Jeff
