JoAnna was riding as one of the Huntsman Town Heros, but decided to ride with her daughter instead. I was worried about Ella and Jacque....wondered how they would do riding 18 miles.
Before our start time, LRRH had set up the Tie Dye Cafe. Coffee, hot chocolate, OJ, and a morning breakfast which consisted of muffins, bagels, fruit, and oreos dipped in peanut butter.

|Check out those arms!! Light must have been hitting them just right, |
cause I actually see a "tricept!"
The aid station in Trenton was fantastic. A CLEAN HoneyBucket! Let me just tell you, during running events with men, those HoneyBuckets get pretty NANSTY! Nothing like sitting on the toilet with a stinking urinal right in your face!
Anyway, the aid station was very well stocked: GU Chomps, GU, water, granola bars, licorice, just to name a few.
The LUNA crew were very supportive, ringing their bells and cheering us on.
Crossing the finish line!
Next year, definitely! And I will ride a longer distance for sure! What a great day, and I am so glad that I was able to share it with my daughter and wonderful friends. I am truly grateful for my health, and that I am able to do these athletic events.
I have been told that Alice Telford is the founder of the Little Red Riding Hood Cycling event. Alice started riding when she was in her 60's! When she started Little Red there were just 25 women for that first ride. With the support of the Bonneville Cycling Club, it has grown steadily since then. What a neat lady!!
