Summer event ride season has commenced.  This past Sunday,  ten InTandem teams cycled the discover Hudson Valley Ride, presented by Bike New York.  Tackling distances from 15 miles to 100 miles, all but one of our teams completed the ride.  Kudos to Brandy and Chris for doing the 75.  Tiffany and Jonathon were ready to do the 100 but bike problems knocked them out pretty early on.  Did not stop Jonathon from enjoying that chocolate eclair ice cream stick (see photo below).

Special thanks to Kirsten Sonnenberg and Mick Grimme for coming along and helping out. Kirsten did the driving.  Shout outs to new captains Bill Raftery and Mark Berens.  Welcome.
