Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
4/18/07
 

Greetings Riders,
 
Well, the Cyclerides.com Hearts To Heroes is now complete for 2007 and what a special event it was. First of all, I want to thank everyone who attended for their support. In General Caldwell's words, "The troops were inspired and motivated by the overwhelming support that they saw from everyone in the crowd" of over 2500 inside CCV that not only rode, but drove to attend this event. You were surely a blessing to these guys and a boost to their morale. Thanks again for your loyal attendance to this event. I am already working on the end location for the event next year as another Hearts To Heroes or a welcome home. But it might literally take an act of Congress to make it happen. I will keep you informed on my progress.
 
For those of you that could not make it, the day started with the satellite truck rolling in at 6am to set up and start testing the sat feed to and from Baghdad. Motorcycles soon started lining up at 7am for the sign in where they found Coffee, Donuts and Water available provided by CCV. Inside the Church riders found a HUGE American Flag, and the stage lit up in Red, White and Blue colors. After a few warm up videos, the program started promptly at 9:30am when we went live on the Pentagon Channel TV worldwide to every military installation and cable station that carries the channel. We started with a short riding video with myself inviting everyone to join in to honor our troops before I rode in on stage.
 
We opened Jessica Schall singing a very powerful National Anthem followed by The video called "Remember Me", played to remind us about the sacrifices that our Military Men, Women and Families are making every day. It was now time for the moment that we had all been waiting for. After giving my thoughts on what the word "Hero" means to me, (Click Here For Video) I introduced our real Heroes Major General William Caldwell and accompanying Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines that were with him in Baghdad, Iraq. Right on queue, they popped up on the giant screen in the Church and I will never forget the ear to ear grin on their faces as they saw everyone give them well over a minute long standing ovation. That moment was priceless for me as well as all 2500 in attendance. You could tell that they were completely in awe of the overwhelming support for them. It was one of those moments that we won't soon forget. After some comments by General Caldwell to bring us up to speed on the mission in Iraq, we heard from some of the troops that were in attendance thanking us for our support. (Click Here for Video) This picture, taken in Baghdad, brings home the fact that they were really watching us.
 
After honoring our guys that are in the line of fire now, I wanted to honor those that had served in past wars including WW2, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, and Iraq. For the Vietnam guys, I asked that the audience would get up, shake a hand and give these guys the "Welcome Home" that they never got. It was pointed out to me later that there are other Veterans who did not serve in combat that should be honored as well and they are right. Next year I will have the call for ALL Veterans. Everyone who has served our military is extremely important. This was followed by Briel Batino who beautifully sang "American Tears" to honor all of our current and past military.
 
Sometimes back at home, we don't really realize how much our support means to our troops. My next guest was T.J. Kowacz, an E4 Specialist who is recently back from serving in Iraq. T.J. is largely responsible for me going forward with this years Hearts To Heroes. He came up to me at the deployment of the National Guard to Afghanistan and told me how much last years Hearts to Heroes meant to him. I had no idea that they were even looking. T.J. shared with the crowd how Cyclerides.com was his link back to the United States and also told how looking at all of the photos and video from last years Hearts To Heroes was an inspiration to him and all of his comrades as they would look at every single photo and video to see how we supported them.
 
The program then turned back to Baghdad where we brought 4 families on stage to be reunited via satellite with their loved ones in Iraq. This was truly an inspiring moment. It was especially heartwarming when SPC Jennifer Fulk got to say hello to her Mother and her Grandmother via satellite. There were also smiles all around as we provided reunions with Maj. Keith Turner, Sr. A Thomas O'Neal, and 1st Lt. Ryan Schmoll. It was truly a moment to remember.
 
That 50 minutes had flown by and were now at the close of the program featuring a video interview of Jessica Schall who lost her brother Sgt. Kenny Schall in Iraq about 18 months ago. Jessica performed a riveting rendition of "I Thank The Soldier". (Click Here for Video) I'm sure at the end of that song there was not a dry eye in the house. A very inspiring song and Jessica performs it with so much emotion. We then closed the one hour telecast via satellite with a prayer for our troops from Senior Pastor of CCV, Dr. Don Wilson.
 
We were then on our way for a DPS escorted ride with the Patriot Guard and their huge flags leading the way to Phoenix International Raceway for a victory lap around the track. After a slow ride down the Loop 101 due to the estimated 2000 bikes in tow, we eagerly anticipated entering the tunnel at PIR for our lap around the track. To make this work smoothly, we entered the tunnel on the left side of the road, went through the infield to turn 2, went left and made the entire lap around the track and entered back into the infield continuing on the wrong side of the road to make our way out of the PIR to head West on our way to Westgate. Riding around the track was really the icing on the cake that day. It was something that you just can't do every day and was a real treat to be able to be riding where they are going to be roaring NASCAR through there this weekend. Thanks to Phoenix International Raceway for the opportunity to do this.
 
After that spike of adrenaline that we got from going around PIR, it was off to Westgate City Center for the closing ceremonies with Jesse McGuire. We were able to line the street with bikes next to the fountains where there were food and drink vendors available. Rondavous closed out the day with some great music.
 
I think it was an inspiring and memorable day for everyone who attended. Even though I was the emcee, I was a spectator just like all of you when those Heroes wearing our United States military uniforms popped on screen and they gave us that big smile. That was a proud moment that I won't soon forget.
 
This was a big undertaking and I want to thank everyone who contributed in making this event happen including Christ's Church of the Valley for the awesome location and diligent staff, Roxie Merritt with the Dept. of Defense and her staff for making the satellite connection possible, Phoenix International Raceway and Richard Petty Driving Experience for the once in a lifetime lap around the track, DPS for the escort, Westgate City Center for hosting the end party along with Jesse McGuire and Rondavous. I would also like to thank David Whitten for his devotion to helping Cyclerides.com with this project. And most of all, I personally want to thank everyone who attended for making this a special event to honor our troops. And finally, I have gotten a couple hundred emails of Thanks and well wishes. I appreciate that more than you can imagine and will soon answer every one of them. Thank You for your support of Cyclerides.com and our events. You are the best!!

I received this email from General Caldwell that I would like to share with all of you.
 
Barry -- would like to personally thank you for your continuing support for the Troops here in Iraq and for putting on the Cyclerides.com Hearts to Heroes – what a tremendous event! 
 
Seeing and personally experiencing an event showcasing support from the American people is tremendously uplifting for our Troops and I can tell you the group of servicemembers from Arizona and Southwestern present were inspired and motivated after the encounter. 
 
Know an immense amount of hard work and meticulous preparation went into planning and executing the operation, and hope the end result was as fulfilling for you as it was for all of us here in Iraq.  You are true Patriots and we are thankful that we have great Americans like you behind us here as we work to make a brighter future for all Iraqis.
 
Thanks again for your support and for putting on the Hearts to Heroes to honor our Troops.   
 
Very Respectfully -- Bill Caldwell

Here is an email from Sgt. Ryan Kenner that you saw on the telecast.
 
Good Afternoon all!
 
First things first, thank you all for all of your hard work, dedication, and support. I am SGT Ryan Kenner, I was involved with the Hearts to Heroes videoconference with MG Caldwell (I was to his right 2 persons in the front row). It was hard at times throughout the program not to cry. And it was great to see the reaction of the other troops as their families were talking to them, I only wish you had another camera here so that you could see how much we talked about it afterwards.
 
What you are doing is great, I hope a lot of soldiers throughout the country see what is happening here. I used to see these things on the news and it was an awesome experience to actually be apart of it. I understand that it just isn't you that organized the program and I would like to extend my gratitude to everyone that participated in this event. The care packages are also a plus and an added experience. I answer every care package letter and usually end up forging a relationship with those on the other end.
 
I do have a request however, and I am not sure if you will have it posted on your website. The program in its entirety, if I could get a copy, also I can extend myself and experiences to help you continue your efforts so if there is anything you need or want to ask please do. You may be here for me but remember we like to be needed too. Also you mentioned Heroes, My hero are the men, women, and children that support us unconditionally and understand what we need. Without them, they wouldn't have heroes.
 
Thank you for your time. And thanks again to you and your crew for all that you do.
 
SGT Ryan Kenner
 
There were many responses about the ride and riders sharing their own experiences that I thought should be shared with others as well as our troops that read the site. So I have started a sort of a blog page with the comments that I have gotten. If you would like to add to it, just email me your comments about the ride or your support comments for the troops to read.

Notes from the event:
 
**I have to say that I am very disappointed in the lack of local media coverage of this event for a City the size of Phoenix, AZ. The editors of the papers and producers of these television stations need to take a look at what is REALLY important. If it would have been an Anti-War Protest, Pro Immigration Rally, Gay Pride March or even a flippin' AKC Dog Show at Westworld, there would have been live coverage on TV, Front Page News in the AZ Republic and Helicopters flying overhead. But since it was just an unprecedented live 2-Way Live Satellite hookup  with over 2500 people in attendance to honor and support our troops fighting for the rights of those other groups to do what they do, we get NO COVERAGE in the Arizona Republic and cursory coverage by the TV Stations. Thanks for TV 5 and TV 3 for their coverage of the event, or there would not have been any. Yes, I am ticked!! I think our guys deserve better than this from our media.
 
**The ride took a lot longer than I had planned, I was wore out and sunburned by the time we got to Westgate, but I kept telling myself that this is a very small price to pay compared to what our Military is going through in Iraq right now. Maybe this was meant to be our small sacrifice to honor them.
 
**It was a great sight to see so many people standing on the side of the road with flags or just waving at the riders. I saw one man in particular on Glendale Ave. that stood at attention as we all rode by. Very inspiring.
 
**Some of you might have seen Mrs. C. stuck on the road as we exited I-10 to head to PIR. The top of the flag that was attached to her bike broke loose and when she slowed down the flag got wound up in the rotor and brake pads and locked up the rear wheel. She did a great job of keeping the bike up when the wheel locked. We could not get it removed, so we picked up the bike and dragged it to the median and left it. Mrs. C. got on with Lyman and continued the ride.
 
**We are working on putting together a full DVD of the entire day to send to the troops and have available for all anyone who would like a copy. It will hopefully be done within the next 30 days.
 
**We ran out of T-Shirts at the ride and I am getting more printed. I will have 3 styles of shirts available including a Women's tank top, Men's baseball shirt like I wore at the event, and a white t-shirt with black trim. Watch for the link in next week's letter to order shirts and pins.
 
**We will also have ride pins available next week if you didn't get one at the event.
