I wanted to give an amazing thank you for everyone who rode and contributed to the ride. We raised THOUSANDS for World Bicycle Relief and we very thoroughly killed Bill. Special thanks to those who came out to cheer us on. It really helped to see the signs that Bob painted on the road and see him at Mile 50. We got to wave at vicegrip's family early on at the ride. Consularrider was putting that cowbell and vuvuzela to good use the two times we past him. Americancyclo's wife and daughter were out to cheer us on at mile 101. We even met up with virtually the entire Bikenetic shop crew along Sleepy Hollow as they were heading out for a round of golf.

The Gang in Action

We started with 18 riders and managed to get 10 through the whole ride and to the finish. MegaBeth was AWESOME to join us at Barcroft and ride with us to the end. Everyone really came prepared for the ride... they brought their A-Game and accomplished what they set out to.

Highlights of the day....

Overcoming adversity (http://www.flickr.com/photos/pedrogringo/8690096977)... like Troy.

Hans' KOM on Jay Miller still has me confounded!!!

George riding the first 26 miles fixie and Yueqing riding the first 46 on his single speed. They didn't just ride... they rode WELL!

The biggest highlight for me was the way the whole group worked together... taking turns leading, sweeping and keeping the group together throughout the whole ride. Without EVERYONE's contributions, this wouldn't have gone nearly as well as it did.

Thank you all very much!

Have a great week! You earned it.

Pete

Thanks for putting it together, Pete! I will admit that my ride to work this morning was... painful. :)

Although I didn't Kill Bill, I'm glad I was there to at least quarter him.

Also...got several QOMs, guys, thanks for the lead out and encouragement. :)

Again, thanks, Pete. You are Good People.
