Road captains are very important support in any Bike for Bibles event. They are the ones who ensure that rides happen; they do most of the leg-work before the event – finding the perfect routes, connecting with partners, acquiring all the appropriate permits, and etc. CBS can’t thank them enough for the valuable work they do.
Featuring our road captains this season is our way of thanking them for their work. It’s also our way to get to know them better, particularly: why they do what they do for Bike for Bibles.
Our first featured Road Captain is Sue Roth.
B4B: How old were you when you learned how to ride a bicycle?
Sue: Three. The same year I learned to swim.
B4B: Who taught you to ride?
Sue: My brother
B4B: What is your “bestest” memory on a bicycle?
Sue: Taking my bike up to the lake and riding it off the dock and into the water, then trying to ride it underwater.
B4B: How long have you been riding with B4B?
Sue: I believe my first ride was in 2011.
B4B: What’s the best thing about riding with B4B?
Sue: Well, I get to exercise two of my passions, which are photography and bike riding, while raising funds so that others can dig into God’s Word.
B4B: Why do you keep joining B4B?
Sue: I love all that it stands for and I want to continue to be a part of it as long as my legs will let me. And when I can no longer ride, then I hope to be able to participate in other ways!
B4B: What should riders expect from this year’s ride in Toronto?
Sue: Look for bright sunny skies, a great view of the waterfront, newly paved paths in some sections, and a chance to view the city from a new perspective. Also, if all goes according to plan, we will have a Mascot this year!
B4B: What’s your personal fundraising goal this year?
Sue: $500.00 to $1,000.00.
B4B: When your legs are tired and can’t pedal anymore, what do you tell yourself?
Sue: Turn on the motor! This year I will be riding my e-Bike, I will not use the motor unless I am struggling on a hill…I promise!
