After returning home from participating in the 100-mile bicycle race for the Dempsey Challenge, I mentioned to some of my team members that this event will be circled on many calendars in the years ahead.

I’ve participated in my share of charity rides and I can say to the people of Lewiston-Auburn — you nailed this one. The course (ouch!), volunteers, post-event activities were all first-class. One more reason I’m proud to call Maine my second home.

See you all next year.
