This 2nd annual event was founded by Coach Tim Hall to raise money for Team Red, White and Blue, a veterans organization, whose mission is to enrich the lives of vets in their local communities through physical and social activities.  The ride covers the entire 444 miles of the Natchez Trace Parkway from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN.  This year the ride had 20 total riders, which included PCG athlete Rick Harris, as well as Ben Day and Jeff Louder of the UHC Pro Cycling Team. Each rider was responsible for raising a minimum of $2,000.  The event was sponsored by Aegis Sciences Corp. and the Aegis Foundation. Each day the ride was over 100 miles with Stage 3 being the Queen Stage at 128 miles. Coach Hall and Rick both rode solidly after having done a huge block of volume and lots of sub-LT work.  To learn more about the ride please visit www.biken2n.com, and to learn about Team RWB please visit www.teamrwb.org
