Mary McCauley, rider #30 celebrated her 76th birthday and was planning to ride, however a sprained wrist cause her to volunteer and SAG for the day. Despite a car accident on ride day that totaled her car, Mary attended the Sunday Brunch a bit shaken, but well protected by airbags...she is looking forward to riding on the 2009 ride. What an amazing spirit!
