      I did not know either! I took off there too. "Swamp" is an apt description.

    Another epic blast up and down the valley - with another great crew. So happy to meet all the new folks and rejoin with familiar faces - much fun! (Sorry about the hills!) ; )

    I had a lot of fun; good crowd. I will look forward to the next one; at some point I tried to pass a few of the fast riders and a brief race took place; was fun

      Most of us actually had cranberry juice but a couple had wine; beer was a choice though
