"Riding through the Rockies was one of the most beautiful things I've ever done. When we were passing through the Northern tip of Idaho into Montana and we climbed 3,000 vertical feet in 6 miles and honestly it was one of the most physically difficult things I've ever done in my life, but it was just absolutely beautiful," says Joseph Badinger a 2016 Bike4Alz Team Member.
