Great Ride Night!

Posted by Sheila Joy on May 27, 2009

Well the Tuesday night group had a GREAT turn out!  I did not count how many riders we had but we a nice size group.

We had a few new riders show up tonight and hopefully the fast pace did not scare them off!

What a ride on Tuesday evening!!!

The pace was hot the sprints well contested, and the company was terrific! This was one of our night of testosterone driven insanity…..

Tri Adventure Race

Posted by Sheila Joy on May 16, 2009

Early this morning (Saturday May 16th) while most of you were still in bed all snugg and warm a few of our own riders were out doing their personal best.

The Tri Adventure started out with a 36 mile biking course. Participants kayaked or canoed 5 miles down river for the second leg and finished with an eight mile backpacking hike.

The morning started out overcast and mild but as the morning wore on the conditions changed making a challenging event even more challenging for most! There was wind, rain and high water in the river.

I think it looked like a good time. Everyone was in good spirits. Great way to spend a Saturday!
