It was a cold dark....... no wait that is another story. But Friday started out just like that but add rain and more rain. Most of the community ride was rained out but a few of us did make it to 1st Ward School for Performing Arts in Charlotte. All of the cold and misery of the day was gone when we saw the kids lined up to greet us. It was once again such a heartwarming site to see and meet all of these kids. No matter how cold we had been this was worth it. The program they put on was great and the teachers and staff were so welcoming. We ended the day with a short ride to the main campus of CPCC where we had lunch and called it a day, a very wet and cold day.
Saturday was still cloudy but not raining and although the weather scare off quite a few we still had 70 or so riders. The new routes had just been finished and although two of my favorite places were gone because of flooding and or washed out bridges everyone commented on the quality of the routes. KPMG came out strong with a 10 rider team and Cadwallader joined us with 6 riders. The routes were fairly evenly split as far as riders go and everyone had great things to say about the day despite the weather. Two Chicks and a Truck provided the catering this year and it was excellent, thanks to you two gals for the great food. Our sponsor this year was Unilever Corporation and we would like to thank them for everything. Lastly but not least Honor the Warriors would like to thank all of the riders who came out to support the event.
