Ressmeyer spoke to news leader 9 about what this journey means to his riders

"Us as the riders, all the guys believed in our House. They believed in the Arabella House. They believed in the Carpenter's Way Ranch. They believe in those kids and they're willing to go out there on the line and say I'll do ten thousand miles. I'll ride gravel roads. I'll do what it takes to show that support for those kids," says Ressmeyer.
