Team and Club members enjoyed a nice outing on Saturday October 22nd at the Athletic Mentors facility in Delton. A large group launched in the morning for a spirited ride on gravel roads over much of the Barry-Roubaix Gravel Road Race course. It was brisk at the start but it didn’t take long to encounter steep hills that caused some wardrobe adjustments. A special acknowledgement goes to Jeff Mira, from our Running Team, who completed the 39 mile hilly loop on his Mountain bike and then announced that his longest previous rice had been 26 miles. But Jeff was strong and moving well despite this 50% increase in mileage.
After the ride we were joined by spouses and treated to a cookout and prize distribution while we enjoyed the late October sunshine. Thanks to Cheryl Olson for arranging and hosting this gathering. A good time was had by all.
