Rider and Volunteer Feedback:
Your ride was one of the best managed rides I did in 2014. Not only was it a great course but the support you were able to give the riders was amazing! Great aid stations/rest stops. All the volunteers were helpful and supportive.
I look forward to doing more of your events.
This is long overdue, but I wanted to say THANK YOU for the White Mountain Double Century event two weeks ago. First time rider and the climbs literally took the breath out of me. I have to say thank you for the fantastic crew of volunteers and support you assembled, without whose cheerful personalities the ride wouldn’t have been the same. It was a great feeling rolling onto each rest stop with people just cheering us on and anticipating our needs, such as refilling water bottles, handing us ice, soaking towels in cold water, etc.
But most of all, thanks for the the really well-thought out course and the strategically-placed and spaced rest stops and aid stations. I initially overestimated myself and underestimated the difficulty of the course, discounting the combined effects of altitude, heat, and hills. I got a chance of riding in the California-Nevada desert with the proper support.
Thanks again for a wonderful event. I did a short write up, if you are interested. It’s on my blog
