Hi. My name is Jen Anderson. I ride my bike past your house a lot during the summer, and I wanted to say thank you for driving safely around my training partners and I. I decided to ask the local triathlete and cycling community to help me say thank you to you and your neighbors, all 357 residences on the Ironman Wisconsin bike loop. Over 60 athletes home-baked 2,200 cookies for you with sincere gratitude and appreciation.
I wish that my legs could pedal as fast as you can drive, but unfortunately I’m not that fast. I hope you know that I really appreciate it when you slow down and move over when it’s safe to pass and allow me some room in the lane. I promise to always do my best and be a responsible cyclist. I vow to be aware of my surroundings, and listen for cars approaching. I will not litter in your lawn and I will stop at the stop signs in your neighborhood.
I have a lot of friends that I love very much that also ride the course, so thank you for watching out for them, too. I am a very lucky athlete to be able to ride the roads of the Ironman Wisconsin bike course. I am so thankful to be able to bike the beautiful country and the challenging hills. Thank you for watching out for me and driving safely around me so I can ride these roads for years to come.
