What they were thinking

What they were thinking: Best Buddies Challenge

Stan Grossfeld/Globe Staff

Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what's happening in the shot.

Who's up today: Dave Micalizzi of Lincoln, N.H., and Ian Clemence-Schreiner of North Woodstock, N.H., participated in the 100-mile Best Buddies Challenge from Boston to Hyannis Port on June 2, 2012.

Micalizzi: “The pedals only go the same way, and you have to be in synch. If one person is tired and doesn’t want to pedal, unfortunately the other guy is picking up the resistance of the guy not pedaling. We left in a downpour and the rain turned into more of a mist, so we’re both kind of excited that we’re not going to spend the whole day in a nor’easter. Ian’s in a really great mood. He used to be a little bit more of a trash-talker, but now he’s much more sincere - throwing encouragement back out to folks as we passed them. He’s a great role model for anyone with a disability to show what you can do with your life. He’s not the disabled one, he’s the one helping folks.’’

Clemence-Schreiner: “We pedal as a team but I’m the power on the back of the bike. They call me the ‘Silver Spur’ because I want to pass a lot of people. I’ve been doing this ride for the last eight years. I raised over $10,000 one year. Best Buddies means to me helping people. Best Buddies rocks the whole country, from California to D.C. to New York. It inspires me and my whole family and friends who love me and want to care for me.’’
