56 miler

Michelle Ryback stops for a drink at the first rest stop located at Bodfish Bike Shop in Chester during the 35th annual Mile High 100 bike ride June 17. Ryback didn’t flinch at the steep hills around the lake. “These are nothing compared to La Porte or even Bucks Lake Road,” said Ryback indicating where she trained for her 56-mile ride.
