Team Tripower showed up in force for the first Miles 4 Meredith, a fundraiser for Meredith Nicolls, a fellow mountain biker and great chef who took a terrible spill a few years ago at the Tidewater Mountain Bike Challenge. He broke his neck and is now paralyzed below his shoulders. We raised $800 for Meredith’s health fund. The event was organized by our host Dan Gibson, who is recovering from his own back issues and enjoyed his longest ride in some time.
