Greetings from Provo, Utah!

It gives me great pleasure to extend my warmest greetings to those of you participating in the Ride 2 Freedom Cross Country Bike Tour.

On behalf of the residents of Provo, we appreciate your effort to raise awareness of the persecution of Falun Gong in China. It is impressive to see a group of teens from throughout the world, spread their message of human rights as they journey across the country.

We commend you for your efforts to make a difference in the lives of those whose freedoms are being challenged. We are continually grateful to those who have fought to preserve our quality of life and the precious freedoms we enjoy in our country.

We hope while you are traveling through our beautiful state, you will enjoy the hospitality and friendliness that abounds here. Please take with you the warmth and good will of our City.

Best wishes,
John R. Curtis
