Charles Ries gives a pep talk
September 14, 2010 | 9:36 p.m. CDTCharlie Ries gives riders a pep talk Saturday morning before the MS bike ride. He led cyclists in his well-known "Hip, hip...hooray!" cheer to get them excited. The number "281" on his shirt corresponds to his bid number when he first volunteered 25 years ago. He has kept that bid number every year afterward.
