100 Riders, Bagels, Coffee, and Loaner Bikes

Holy Cow! This week we once again had more than 100 cyclists (110 to be exact) at the Promenade ready to ride.  It was a beautiful day and a special Sunday.  Danzeisen & Quigley was there with 2 trailers of brand new 2012 Fuji bikes. Team Evesham members could test out these high quality bikes on the 30 mile Long Bridge Park ride.  Many of our members took advantage of the opportunity, and as a bonus there were bagels and coffee for everyone to munch on while the demo bikes were being set up.

While the opportunity to sign up for a test ride or just inspect the new bikes was a good start to the day, we can’t forget the ride itself.  The Long Bridge Park ride is one we have not done in a while. It takes us up through Moorestown and out Marne Hwy. almost to Mt. Holly, then a quick ride through the park and onto Lumberton, Medford, and back to Evesham.  It was the best Sunday for riding in quite a while, the humidity was down, the temperatures were comfortable and the sun was shining.

We’re approaching mid-August now, and the MS City to Shore is only 6 weeks away (9/29-30).  If you haven’t already started it’s time to start getting in shape the ride. (or just keeping in shape.)  Also, watch for announcements of the Team Evesham pre-ride dinner.
