With the days getting shorter and shorter our Thursday night ride at DG is coming to an end for 2012. With DST coming up we would have to start riding at 3pm to be out of there by sundown!
When I started this weekly ride I had no idea how it would turn out. I made so many new friends from this ride. It motivated us to get on our bikes and ride, no excuses! It was awesome to see people that struggled to complete a lap at 1st go on to complete multiple laps after a few weeks. All of us improved our endurance while having a great time hanging out with people who share our love of riding. No better way to exercise than that!
We had 5 or 6 people from our ride give the Meltdown a try for the 1st time which was great. So many people that ride never actually try a race. If you didn't race at all this year make sure you sign up for at least 1 in 2013. It is an experience you will never forget.
Thank you to Jack, Joe, Len, JT, Brad, Rob, John, Susan, Damien, Dominick, Tim, Ryan, Mike, Linda, Tom, Donny, Kristen, Chris, Garrett, Norm, Joe and a few more that I am missing, who came out to ride with us at Deer Grove in 2012. We will do this again in 2013!
