What is the Trek Family?

Well, it is sort of hard to explain unless you have been part of it, but we will try and give it a shot.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the Trek Family would look something like this:

We: “you and I and another or others.”

Are: “the present tense plural of be.”

Trek: “to make one's way arduously.”

Family: “a group of people united by certain convictions or a common affiliation.”

What the world thinks the Trek Family is:

The big glob of cyclists who clog up the roads for three days straight.

What your friends think the Trek Family is:

A group of people who are super into cycling, never stop posting about it, bombard your newsfeed with photos of strangers, and ask for money all of the time to help end a terrible disease.

What we KNOW the Trek Family is:

The most dedicated and loving group of individuals you could ever meet. A group that makes you feel so loved and cared for that it is hard to put into words how much they mean to you. A unified group of people who would give anything to end ALS and come together every year to support each other for miles on end.

We know that the Trek Family can mean a lot of things to different people, and one thing we know for sure is that we can’t wait till we get to see our family again, June 21-23, at Tri-State Trek 2019.
