The weather forecast for Sunday, Sept. 18 looked pretty threatening but it turned out to be a great day to ride. Yes, there were a few light sprinkles here and there but not enough to “dampen” our enthusiasm. We had 405 people register and it sure sounded like everyone was having a good time. Dave Young’s chicken corn soup got rave reviews as did the home made cookies, walk-around tacos and other great food. We got lots of good comments about the enjoyable routes, too. The financial report on the Century isn’t finalized yet, but we’ll post that at a later time.
In the meantime, we owe a big thanks to The Pedal Pusher Bike Shop and Recycle Bicycle for their help with bike repairs, Wegmans and Giant Food Stores for their generous donations of gift cards, and a big pat on the back is due to all the hard-working volunteers who make this such an enjoyable event for the participants.
