Post Pelotonia 2017 by Tim Barber

I enjoyed my ride with Pelotonia even more than last year! I was in better shape this time, the weather was cooler and the crowds were bigger. I went as Waldo again...silly, but why not?   

The opening ceremony featured former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden.

James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.
