Lisa Stamos- Quintessential Barrington
Jan Gierlach is the second generation to bike for Ride For 3 Reasons—the Barrington founded fundraiser that benefits three specific causes. And on this one-of-a-kind cycling adventure across the country, he is going it alone.
On February 7, 2017 in San Diego, Jan Gierlach will wave goodbye to his dad, who will be at the starting point to see him off on his singular journey. Gierlach’s interest in this larger-than-life adventure started years ago when Bob Lee, founder of the Ride For 3 Reasons, spoke to students about the Ride. Lee, a Barrington, Ill. resident, founded the Ride to raise funds for three specific causes—ones that he felt strongly about and wanted to support. Lee rode on two different occasions in two different parts of the country. Now, it’s Jan’s turn. And he is going it totally alone.
