Misery Loves Company Bike Race

Hey friends, Did that subject line really say free racing? That's right, free and fun are two of my favorite words so I figured I should share them with you. So it's free as long as you are a member of MMBA and if your not a member, become a member and it's free! You can become a member at the race. Fun? Fun because you are on a bike, riding stuff you have never ridden before, competing with your local friends and best of all sharing stories, exaggerations and refreshments with friends after the race on the lawn of the Blarney Stone. Bring your partner, the kids, the neighbors, just don't forget your bike. The more the merrier!
Details? "We don't need no stinking details!' But if you insist the May race will be between 12 and 15 miles the August race will be longer. I'm not telling you the routes! Racing starts at 2:00 pm, don't be late or you just might miss it! See you all at "Misery Loves Company" now why do you think we named it that??? Martin
