Terry and Doc from Superco donated funds to provide healthy snacks to keep our energy up, and when the snacks were gone, Red Bull was on hand to “kick it up a notch.” After a lunch break with food from Chipotle Grill, we practiced our new skills and got some one-on-one time with instructors for a little brush up.
Both Trek and Specialized were there with their respective lineup of women-specific bikes for those of us who like to mix it up and try different rides. We had raffle prizes from SkullCandy, Superco, IMBA, Red Bull, Specialized,Trek, FreeRide Association, DK Bikes, Albeâ€™s BMX, Etnies Girl, and Norco as an added bonus.
The fun continued all weekend. Ray’s saw record numbers of riders as the guys showed up to share the park, and track space was at a premium.
On Saturday night from 10-12p.m., Ray turned the lights off for a night ride around the park, with demo lights from NiteRider Lighting Systems. Karen can attest to the fun of racing around the course in the near dark, but even from the sidelines where I was, the trace of lights weaving through the darkness was somewhat surreal, and very cool.
Many thanks to the instructors:

Also a big thanks to Subaru and Pabst Blue Ribbon for the party at the Holiday Inn on Friday night. Hopefully, theyâ€™ll let us back in next year after the antics in the swimming poolâ€¦.sorry, no details, youâ€™ll just have to come next year to see what you missed.
