04/01/17 Pre-ride course with a few of the organizing committee. Perfect day.Lots of stream crossings and lots of deep water. You will get wet! A few folks doing trail work near Oso and arroyo to help with stream crossings.
04/30/16 Light sprinkles at start but awesome trail conditions for the first half due to last night's rain. Drier once hit Twisty-tire in RSM and the second half of the ride. A few bottlenecks in the beginning, but it opened up fine a few miles in. Took lots of videos and pictures of riders, conga lines, stream crossings, and aid stations. Sun came out at lunchtime - perfect for the balance of the afternoon raffle event. Bummed I didn't win anything, but that's the norm. Thanks to the numerous volunteers and sponsors - helping with almost 1,300 riders and $142,000 raised for the Rwanda National race team and World Bicycle Relief. Another great Rwanda Ride!
04/02/16 Rode with Jim, Ralph, Tim and JP. Started at Dove Canyon waterfall as were was going to do the whole 50 today but their pace was way faster (15%) than my normal so out of gas by the end, so bailed on that plan. Awesome weather out and fun to be on some new trails I'd not been on before.
