Bike Pic March 2, Take Pride In This Great Country We Live In

“From the lakes of Minnesota, to the hills of Tennessee, across the plains of Texas, from sea to shining sea.” We are fortunate to live in a country that takes pride in what we stand for and a country that is free. We are very blessed to be able to go outside, grab our bikes and enjoy the beauty that is America. So this Thursday, we encourage you to not only thank the service men and women who voluntarily, risking their lives so we may be free, but to really reflect on what a great country this is.
