We survived the bike ride day. Despite not participating in the ride, I’m completely trashed from spending 10 hours working the event and most of it on my feet. Overall it went quite well – we learned about things we would improve for next year but the feedback we got was mostly positive. The routes were tough – the long one because it was insanely mountainous and the short one because it was still challenging for the new riders I had recruited to do it (thankfully they all seemed to finish with a smile). We had a couple folks get lost along the way, one of them an elderly gentleman from out of town doing the long course but eventually he rolled in and we fed and watered him as best we could. I think for next year a combination of stronger warnings and some course changes would make the day even more enjoyable for everyone. That said, we had great food before and after the event, a fantastic raffle where nearly everyone won something, and wonderful SAG volunteers to support the ride.
