20 April 2010 - 21:46The Recap
Sorry this post is late, but I was riding my bike this morning.
Pictures taken by Richard Mahoney
All in all, we had about 125 attendees riding bikes on Sunday. I can’t fault the 25 no-shows, the weather wasn’t great, but it was totally their loss. Take a look at those pictures. Most of those folks are having a good time. The guy grimacing on the DH bike even had a good time, although he had to work the hardest going up those hills.
It was really cool to see everyone’s set-ups for the ride. Some rode CX bikes, others on full squish mountain bikes, a couple of old beaters, single speeds you name it, it was there. It’s also cool to see what everyone brought with them. 30 miles is a long way for a lot of folks, hence the pit stop. I liked the folks that had full on expedition gear on their bikes, or huge back packs. It was certainly an adventure.
We’ve gotten a few really nice thank you emails from folks,which is always appreciated. We are glad everyone had a good time. We’ve worked hard to keep this a good event, and we are always trying to find a way to make it better.
Thanks again to everyone who was a part of this event. We hope to see you again next year!
