D2R2 2010: All Smiles
Just back to the hotel in South Deerfield after a couple hours hanging out with the guys and families after a full day on the bike. Despite 7 flats between Jamie and me...more on that later, everyone was glowing after the ride, truly amazed by the quality of the course and the impeccable planning and execution on the part of the organizers and army of incredible volunteers. Thank you all for giving your time so we could all experience a great day on bikes in your neighborhood. In Pascal's word's the ride exceeded his expectations 5-fold. I was worried some of the guys might roll in cursing my name, but each of them was totally chuffed. Fantastic. More, with a few photos, once I'm back in Ottawa after the weekend. Hopefully some of the guys will provide some words to convey their impressions; I'll do a bit of nudging.
