What a great weekend! We started off Friday with breakfast and a Blessing of the Bicycles at the National Bike to Work Day event at the Lexington Depot. We were also there to provide mechanic assistance and show some video playlists put together by Denali and Adam. Then Saturday, we had the Poker Ride! Justin ended up pocketing the pot after he came in with 3 of a kind – beating out all the other riders, and completing 18 miles with his younger brother, Evan, too!
At the end of the day, we all got ready for our first foray into family bikepacking, and it was incredible! The weather was perfect, and we rode about 7 miles and stopped at a swimming hole. I stuck my camera in my bag at that point, so I’d like to thank Scott, Martin, and Andy for many of the photos. I also want to thank Scott for shuttling equipment and cooking pizza! (It was delicious!) Everyone had a great time, and according to Xavier, “it was epic!”
