Collier Lilly Ride 4 Life - 2015 


After much thought and discussion, we have decided that last year's ride was our last.  Its been an incredible 11 year run.  I think Collier would be proud and humbled to know that his gifts have been recognized by so many people over the years. 

There are way too many people to thank but several come to mind immediately.

Debbie Gibbs and Gary Burris of LifeShare Of The Carolinas.  LifeShare has been an incredible organization to partner with and I hope you all continue to support the important work that they do!

Neal Boyd and his crew at Charlotte Sports Cycling.  As you all know, Neal is the ambassador of cycling in the Charlotte area and we could not have pulled this off without his involvement.

Cissi Lyles and Davidson College.  It was wonderful to have such a gracious and flexible host for our event.  They always bent over backwards to make sure we had what we needed.

The organizing committee over the years.  Thorne Gregory, William Bray, Margaret Park, Whitney Montgomery and Robbie Howell.      

And lastly, everyone who has ridden with us over the years.  Thanks for coming out and riding year after year.  It was fun!!

We'll keep this website and our Facebook page going.  Who knows, we may have serious withdrawals after a year or two and try and resurrect the ride at some point down the road.


Until then, happy and safe riding...and remember, organ sharing is a powerful thing!
