What an amazing day four to complete the inaugural Memorial to Memorial, M2M, bike ride. CSAF, Gen. CQ Brown, Jr. led the team into the AF Memorial and it was truly memorable on the Air Force's 75th anniversary. #AF75, #m2m, #AFCT

CSAF presented Capt. Anya Wallace the M2M Rider of the year and Chief Master Sgt. Steven Hughes, retired, the M2M Support Person of the year awards.

Memorial To Memorial Day 2-Our second day took us from Norfolk to Richmond. Day 2 also marked our first official “Century” day and the Virginia countryside rewarded us with incredible views and excellent weather.

We were treated with a great lunch in the Jamestown Township from the local VFW post after a cool ferry ride across the water. The VFW was gracious and generous.
We then took to the Virginia Capital Trail the final 50 miles into Richmond, what a first class trail. Shaded and smooth, it made for a great ride.
We finished the night at the Virginia War Museum. What a beautiful tribute to the men and women who served their state and nation. We presented a nice signed photo of the AFCT to thank them for their hospitality, if you get a chance please visit.

Sure looks like fun!!

The Inaugural Air Force Cycling Team Memorial 2 Memorial ride kicked off this morning at the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kitty Hawk North Carolina. Over 60 riders completed 92+ miles in what was an incredible first day. We were blessed with beautiful temperatures and great hospitality.

Pictured below is Bob “Surf” Beletic, M2M Organizer coordinating logistics with the Kitty Hawk Police Department who provided outstanding support along with several other Sheriff and Police Departments across the area. We are indebted to their service and appreciate the work they do daily keeping the public safe!

Tomorrow we are at it again and are excited to continue to celebrate our heritage and the 75th Anniversary of the USAF!

Looking for guidance

I have an older SRM power meter, I think the batteries finally died this week.

Is there a local shop that will replace them or should I send it back to SRM facility to have them replaced.

Thanks

I would think the other two AF riders in teh picture might be able to? Shouldn't be difficult. Blue shoes, water bottle mounted in teh seatback, gravel bike, and solar arm sleeves.

I messaged Van Duzer and gave him the background of the Team. Hopefully he includes it in the rest of the episodes he’s editing right now. Fun to see an AFCT road side assist make it into a YouTube cycling channel!

He gave a shout out to the AF team in the Day 1 video as well.

Big shout out to Ben, John, Kevin and Will! THANK YOU! Seven miles into the last day of my first RAGBRAI, I did something I've never done in 42 years / 350,000 miles of riding; I broke my chain. As I stopped to pick it up off the road after turning around having coasted a while and wondering, "now what do I do?", somebody yelled out "everything OK" to which I replied, "I broke my chain" and before I could finish standing upright after picking up the chain there were three Air Force Cycling Team members present, with gloves on, ready to take the grimy chain from me! They were Ben, John, and Kevin from if I remember correctly, New Mexico? Then a 4th AFCT member stopped - Will. Perhaps the same Will I see that was "on “Loan” from the US Army"? Within five minutes this fine group of four gentlemen had me back on the road able to finish my first RAGBRAI. Again, THANK YOU Ben, John, Kevin, and Will. ... See MoreSee Less

I need to give a shout out to Trey Munn and the entire Air Force Cycling Team on Ragbrai 2022.

It was only about 10 miles into the first day of riding and my wife Denise O'Halloran was climbing one of the many amazing hills when all of a sudden there was a crunch and she was done! Her rear derailleur had pulled right off the frame hanger and was stuck in the spokes. We got off the road and assessed the situation. It looked very bleak. We tried to stay positive but the bike seemed totally unridable. Within minutes we were being assisted by the Air Force. Talk about service! We thought for sure Denise Britt O'Halloran would have to call it a day and sag wagon it into Ida Grove. Now if you know Denise you know she has trained relentlessly and fully intended to complete each and every mile on her own power. Failure is not an option!

Trey Munn and the numerous AFCT members who stopped to assist came up with a plan. We removed the derailleur and shortened the chain after carefully selecting which 1 gear Denise would have on her Trek Silque to ride the remaining 45 miles. Trey hung in there with us and together we fiddled and performed the roadside MacGyver. It worked! My studly wife Denise road the last 45 miles on a 1 speed bicycle. (Small front ring and about the middle of the rear cassette.)

When we arrived in Ida Grove we went right to Bike World to see Forrest Ridgway and his team. They got her rebuilt within a few hours.

So this is a story about some amazing and resourceful individuals who saved Ragbrai 2022 for Denise and I. Integrity, service, excellence! These guys are living it! Thank you Trey Munn and all the members of the Air Force Cycling Team who helped us and countless other cyclists. And huge kudos to my incredible 1 gear wonder wife Denise! Ragbrai rocked!!
