Tour de Taverns 09

Jumping ahead a day. Wednesday and Thursday contained some super mtn biking up in the Keweenaw Peninsula of Upper Michigan, and that is coming.

But, wanted to get the Tour de Taverns stuff on ASAP for the local folks.
Sponsored by Viking Biking Club. Thanks to all from the Club that worked to put this together.

What a great day with great people.
Having raced WEMS, WORS, 24-9, etc. etc. this was so different, but also so similar.
No, most everyone, me so much included, will most probably never stand on a podium but I'm not so sure those that do have any more fun and satisfaction than what we all experienced today, albeit at a different level.
The fun and games at the end were a blast.

Pics and vids with some simple comments or explanations. No more no less. It was that kind of event.

Taking off.On the Military Ridge trail.
