Thanks again for an amazing race you and your volunteers put on last weekend! Definitely a “must do” event for any cycling enthusiast – I can’t imagine too many races in the world quite like it!

I wanted to thank you, your staff and your volunteers for the huge amount of time it took to coordinate the Race, support the riders and clean up afterwards. My friends from Tradewind Cycling and Cambio-Core were first timers like me so I decided to tag along. More guts than brains as my mother would say. Well now that it’s over, I’m glad I did it.
A big thank you to Nathan for helping my friend fit his rental bike. And a special thank you to Rob for his kind words of encouragement for this newbie and support along the course. And to Martin for making sure us slow guys in the back were safe and for blasting his great country and Neil Diamond music to make me smile. These two guys magically pulled me up that hill with their caring especially at the end when I wanted to give up.
And last, I don’t know who to thank because I wasn’t expecting to see my name or my time posted since I came in well after the cutoff and wasn’t wearing my number anymore. I just heard a woman’s voice calling out for my number as I passed through the gate at the bottom of the parking lot. So, please – please thank her for me for caring. My friends all congratulated me as my finish was in print and “official.” You even gave me special recognition on your website as the last female finisher. How cool is that!
I hope your son is doing well at Baldwin H.S. and tell him from one Baldwin grad to another, that I think his dad is super and runs a super bike shop because he cares about the people that pass through it and it shows.
Mahalo Donnie! I’ll be proudly pedaling around Oahu in my 2012 Cycle to the Sun jersey. I’ll be smiling and thinking about you and the boys and the great experience we all shared.
Sincerely, Lynn Wong
