Trails to Trails 100k – April 15

What looked like a tough day in the rain turned into a fun day to ride with friends and new riders.  Here’s a short photo album of the day:

Fourteen of us started in the rain, spirits were high

A wet start but spirits were high!

By the time we reached the first control the rain stopped and we were starting to take layers off.

On the way to the second control in St Bonifacius, Jonas had the first of several flats which plagued him for the rest of the ride.  Brent stayed back to help him.

Then the sun came out and it was now a beautiful day, including some tailwind as we started to head back

Celebratory beverages and pizza were our reward when we finished at Punch Pizza

We did need to dry out our perm cards and sign in sheets though

Jonas and Brent finally finished, thanks to Brent’s big pump and lots of spares and patches
