Rolling in the Rockies


Submitted photo/ Colin Aker and his fellow Journey of Hope bicyclists ride through Colorado.

The day after our 100-mile ride into Shoshoni, Wyo., we departed for Casper. The 105-mile ride was much like the previous day, with the winds being in our favor and the ride being completed in about five hours.

That evening, we had a friendship visit with NOWCAP Services, an organization that provides care for people with disabilities while also helping provide them with work. During the friendship visit, we played kickball with the clients, and everyone had a great time goofing around and getting everyone involved.

A large group of us explored Casper with the cousins of Brett, one of the other cyclists, who live in Casper. Many people got to try their hand at riding a mechanical bull. Just about everyone was whipped off of the bull and onto the mat, and those who managed to do well eventually were thrown farther and harder as punishment for their skill.
