Nice turnout tonight – 24 riders. Beautiful night. On top of the riders we had a nice bunch of visitors, too. Cathy Rowell, ex-club president and Gary J. showed up at registration. At the finish Mike Harris, Mitchell Foley, and Dan Butler watched and socialized. We had quite a few new riders, which is great. Unfortunately, a couple of them missed turns. I hate it when that happens. But the really exciting stuff happen at the start. Dan Brabander was about 2 pedal strokes into his ride when his steering tube snapped. Luckily, he was not hurt. Dawn Michelle had a flat, but someone had loaned her a tube and inflator so she made to the finish without worrying me too much. The 545 guys had a fastest guy buys the beer contest. I miscalculated the times at the finish, so Eric Poch bought the beer, but it should have been Tom Keene. Sorry, if you’d just offer to buy me the beer I swear I’d do better. Brandon Holden had a strong ride and was fastest of the night.
Thanks to Jim, Susan, and Dale for helping.
See you next week.
