Meet Jack, our newest rider.

Severely injured and paralyzed for 3 months after an Army training accident, Jack has recovered sufficiently over the years to join us on the Coast to the Coast. In San Antonio, Jack will link up with the official Soldier Ride organization for the remainder of the journey. Obviously a man of impeccable taste, Jack's planning on rocking a Cannondale for the ride.

He will be tossing his camping baggage into the Honda Element that Clarence of Mad Duck Adventure Sports has so graciously offered to shadow our progress and carry gear for those who don't have the equipment to carry it on the bike - all the way to San Antonio.

Since he'll be traveling light, Jack has generously offered to pull our little pelotón the whole way down into the Springtime breezes.

At least, that's what I think he meant when he offered to show us "how a real man breaks wind"...

Let's give a big hand to both of them.
