Another ACC has come and gone, and I'd just like to take the opportunity to say thank you to everyone who rode, showed, or just hung out. It was an amazing weekend, and I enjoyed myself thoroughly. I hope you did as well.
We had a whole bunch of out of towners visit us, and I was super proud to be able to show them the best of Mineapolis and our unique cycling commnunity. To the folks who traveled to be here, thanks so much for making it more special.
To the sponsors, thank you for making this possible.
And to Emily our volunteer coordinator I'd like to give a special shout out, without your help I don't know how I'd pull it off. You are the unsung hero of the event and absolutely the best at what you do.
Tuck in. This is going to be a long post.
Around 140 racers registered for the race, and the winning route was just over 30 miles.
