Lucky Cat Recap

Thanks to everyone who came, supported, volunteered, and participated in the Lucky Cat. Everyone combined to make it a big success. This years course came in between 18-25 miles depending on your route and had a few familiar challenges in addition to some new twists. We had people from Bham, Florence, Greensboro, and as far away as Ohio. NIce! I met a lot of really great new people and plan on paying it forward in the near future. Opinions varied on this years event but overall I think people felt it was better than last years race. We upped the mileage and threw in more twists. Handling skills payed a fair role this year as well as speed and a bit of luck (davis). The overall winner was a great great guy Josh Driskell from Florence who, this is embarrassing to say, won by almost 8-minutes. Thanks to Chrome Messenger bags, Olde Towne Brewery, UrbanVelo, Mellow Mushroom PIzza, Art & Soul Tattoo, Chris's mom, and Bicycles Etc for the support. Thanks to Tyler, Leela, Janet, Jim, and everyone who helped with pics. Here's a few of them:

What an awesome turnout and a lot of fun. I didn't race, just hung out, but there was a lot of effort and time put into it. Prizes, beer, music, location, planning ... lots of hard work and a great event.
