Excellent Adventure Re-Cap

Well well well.... This has been long overdue and I apologize.

We can finally say that we did it. All the hard work and planning paid off huge. For our first event, 30 people would have made us smile. What would 84 people do for us? Pray that everything goes smoothly and then jump for joy. Tons of new shining faces came out on Saturday to show their love of biking and we couldn't have been more honored. Thank you so much for pedaling your asses off and giving us great pride in our adventure.

Here's a basic run down of events if you missed out on the festivities.
  • 5:00 - 5:54: A slew of siked riders came out to Kathryn Albertson Park to sign up
  • 5:55 - 5:59: Riders tore open their manifests and planned a tentative route
  • 6:00: The madness began and participants took off in various directions
  • 6:00 - 7:00: Seth and I frantically setup the final stop and grab more supplies to sustain the unexpected crowd.
  • 7:06: Beau Burley runs into the final stop taking first place for the men
  • 9:00 - Infinity: People get their drink, food and dance on!

Men
  1. Beau Burley: $100
  2. Danny Kester: $65
  3. Sean E: $35

Women
  1. Kristi Burley - 2nd place overall: $100
  2. Fran: $65
  3. Brittney Gadd: $35
