OUR RIDERS SAY

  • "I thought the route was great and the terrain was about perfect (not to hilly, not to flat). Post race food, beer and music was good."

    "I love this event so much. It's my favorite bike ride of the year. I really look forward to the beer/food/celebration at the end. I hope it never ends. My husband does it with me and a group of coworkers. I really love the option of the family ride for people that don't like to road bike. The addition of the live music and ice cream was awesome! The pizza and beer always hit the spot after a long ride and it's great to have real restrooms. "
