This Saturday, Tom and I volunteered to help out with a bike race. Sixty riders took off around 7am to ride a grueling 50 miles race around the Alpine Loop which would take them over not one but two 12,000 square ft. passes on rugged shelf roads.
Above is the poster advertising the event.
They had absolutely perfect weather . A low of 47 degrees and a high of 74 degrees. This is the banner at the finish line.
John was one of the two organizers of the ride. Pictured here with his wife Kerry. They both are very involved volunteers at many of our events.
This is not the winner, but a rider passing the finish line. I amazed that no one ran over the photographer. Tom and I worked in that tent selling raffle tickets and t-shirts.
The first place winner Brad Bingham center, second place far left Cameron Benneman, and third (rt) Chris Shannon.
Not only were there refreshments awaiting the riders but a free massage....which I feel sure was sorely needed.
