Over 80 Riders and Over 90 Degrees

This past Sunday, July 15th was a hot one but we still had over 80 riders show up in 90 degree+ heat. They all made it back to the starting point too. As far as we know. Just kidding WE NEVER LEAVE A RIDER BEHIND. We had riders of all ages, backgrounds and abilities show up, and for one of the hottest riding days of the year go figure.

There were no flat tires and we heard many great comments from riders about the Sunday ride. “We both very much enjoy being part of Team Evesham and appreciate all the work you… and all the group put in to make the team a possibility.” Also “Great rides all around!  We had a few new riders with us today that I think I have convinced to keep joining us!” At one point though our “B” group started to wander off without a leader. Please follow your group leaders for everyone’s safety.

Laurie from the MS Society was there and signed up several riders for the MS City to Shore ride (September 29th & 30th) at a discounted rate. Our MS team is growing – we’ve already hit 100 riders for the team. This could be our biggest year ever. The new Team Evesham discount code  for the event is “bikems20fee” for a $20 discount (the cost will be only $25). You must sign up with Team Evesham MS team to use it though. If you haven’t signed up yet what are you waiting for? If you have already signed up and would like to ride with Team Evesham for the event please contact Sandy Student (sandy@teamevesham.org) or myself, Brad Davis (brad@teamevesham.org). We’ll have you moved to Team Evesham no questions asked!

Special event: Next Sunday, July 22, in addition to our all-level ride some members of Team Evesham will be riding with the Shore Cycle Club on a 30-40 mile ride around the Batsto/Sweetwater/Hammonton area. Following the ride they will meet up at the Winding River Campground (6752 Weymouth Road, Mays Landing, NJ 08330) for some water tubing. The cost per tube and transportation is $16.05 per person. Sign up here by clicking the “Going” link if you are interested and have a Facebook ID. Otherwise, just show up.
