"Paceline is a fun community rally behind a fantastic cause. It couldn’t get much better. I loved every mile!" said Sharpe.

Clare Easterlin said "it’s great to be back riding in person after a virtual year because of COVID. Paceline is a great fundraising event and a well-supported ride for my first century ride.”
