Well, what can I say, but thank you so much for what made this ride what it was today, even with the rain and resulting mud which made it for me personally one of the most challenging Triple Trail Challenges I've ever participated in ! The wet conditions made the trail and roads slippery and tougher to get through and added to the "challenge" part.
Thanks go out to:
Tree Fort Bike shop and in particular, Scott Mulder for sponsoring this ride and help setting it up, give away schwag,
not to mention the continuing support that you and your shop provide to the Poto Chapter and this annual ride !
I won a Tree Fort pint glass. Nice.
Bill Mayer for getting the word out and organizing/performing the work and preparation that needs to be done so that no rider gets lost along the way. Did Jason Jones mow the grass on the Waterloo-Pinckney section again this year ?
If so, thanks so much for your contribution, if not, thank you to the person that did. Man, those bridges were slippery!
Thanks to whomever made the delicious chili that was served up to us hungry bikers and to Ann Arbor Brewery for the excellent post ride hoppy refreshments, it was SO good today after that slog through the muddy singletrack/dirt roads.
I saw & talked with everyone from the Poto Chapter that I wanted to see - Bill Mayer, Scott Mulder, Michael & Frank Connelly, Jay C., Norm, Bernie Smith, Barry BS and saw a few new friends - Sherri and her friend Pam and Dan (toobad).
So you could say a good time had by all (looked like a big turnout) and see you again next year.
