Sean Walker of Springfield returned a pair of weeks back from the Denver Post Ride the Rockies Bicycle Tour.

There, Walker was with about 2,500 cyclists in his very first big ride after the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are all just itching to trip with people today and to be alongside one another and to be a device once more, to take pleasure in every single other’s business and to have the dialogue and to satisfy aged pals,” Walker mentioned not long ago.

On Saturday, Walker and his spouse, Jennifer Ronen Walker, will be on a lot more familiar footing when the Tour de Donut returns to Staunton following a year’s absence. Virtually 1,000 cyclists are signed up, according to race officials.
