Why I Ride – Mike Woods

Mike Woods is riding for a co-worker’s daughter who is just twelve years. He is riding for Nicole. Before riding in the Pan Ohio Hope Ride, Mike cycled a few times for the Tour of the Roses ride in Austin, Texas and he didn’t know about the Pan Ohio Hope Ride until he saw a flier at Marymount.

This is a personal trip for Mike. He is looking forward to receiving a memento from Nicole so when he takes it out of his jersey at any point during the ride, he is reminded of her and why he is riding. He plans to give Nicole his jersey after the ride is over along with the “Riding For” placecard.

As a new rider to Pan Ohio, Mike is looking forward to a memorable moment from the ride. Having cycling experience from other rides, Mike is inspired by seeing all the cyclists, volunteers and families who support the riders. Everyone has a story to tell and positive kharma to spread.

Mike’s advice for new riders? Take it slow, drink more than you think you need and eat a lot.
