What does SCRC mean to you?: A buncha folks who enjoy riding... almost as much as they enjoy eating... it's been an enjoyable year, I can say EVERYONE's been as welcoming as possible.

Rides I like the most: I do like my peaceful trips up to Virginia... Blazin wheels was a BLAST, with the cops blocking for us. All of the various runs, have all been for good causes, and the people were great

Dream trip: Every day, is an adventure... the next sunrise... sunset... blue heron flight... seeing someone's grin, in the mirror as we ride.
