I have received feedback from many of the riders,, and one almost universal comments was what kind/helpful/cheerful/wonderful/numerous/caring/friendly/knowledgeable volunteers we had. The ride would not have been a success without your efforts. Thank you all for stepping up and covering two, or three shifts.
Other than 3 paper cuts (one requiring a band-aid), there was only one injury. That gentleman did finish the ride, checked in, and had a meal before getting checked out at the ER. I did not hear of anyone getting lost, which was a testament to the route marking, signage, and course marshals. And no one went home hungry, including the couple that rolled in after 6, with smiles on their faces and a meal waiting for them. It takes a lot of effort to feed a thousand people.
For many, it was their first century ride. They were elated.
The only complaint I heard was about the wind for the last portion, and no one blamed FFBC. We should all be grateful that today's weather did arrive a day early. We were lucky with the weather and lucky to have such fine people supporting the ride.
