Everyone at the Please BE KIND to Cyclists organization would like to send out a great big Thank You to everyone who participated, volunteered, and was a part of our Round Rock Express ride held over the weekend.
Austin has been in the wind tunnel this past week and yesterday was definitely no exception. The intense winds made the ride a little more challenging, but the riders toughed it out and cycled through to help benefit our cause.
We are very pleased with the turnout and media coverage that we received. Thank you to YNN Austin for airing this story on the event: http://austin.ynn.com/content/top_stories/277718/cyclists-ride-to-promote-harmony-on-austin-s-roads.
Following the rides (27 and 77 mile courses), everyone enjoyed the BBQ and Beer while watching the Round Rock Express baseball game. Our own Al Bastidas threw out the first pitch and this capped off one incredible day of cycling, awareness, and good times.
Thanks to everyone for their attendance and contribution.
