So far, this season we have 52 riders to participate in our rides with 17 new riders.  That’s a record number of new riders in the history of this series.  We should exceed the record number of total riders (62) set in 2012.  Thanks for your participation.


This was probably the warmest Saturday that we’ve had so far.  Some riders started in shorts while others started in leg warmers and no jackets or vests were needed.  It was a relief not to have to haul extra clothing around.  We had 24 riders to show up and 23 to ride.  One rider (Sabastian) started from Canton at 6:30 am to meet us on the route.  It was a very good day overall but the course was challenging, especially for the handful that completed the entire distance of 119 miles.  There was an error in the cue sheet that caused some delays as well.   We also saw Tom Driscoll on the road with a group of riders who tried to meet up with us in Kent.  Overall, it was a very good day.


No one showed due to light rain.
