The year of the single track.
What can I say? We had a great ride. This year’s San Jacinto Enduro was mile-for-mile tougher than any year before. The difference between the 45 mile route and the 60 mile route was significant, the equivalent of climbing an extra mountain.
We took a new approach to the ride this year. Beyond offering a fun time for everyone to get together for a ride, we decided it was high time to leverage the opportunity to help out own local community. We asked for donations to the Idyllwild Help Center to stock the food bank shelves. Going into Fall, we figured this was an especially timely opportunity.
A cursory count shows us mountain bikers raised about 300 food items for the Help Center!
And we had a good time doing it.
The ride was hard, the weather was great, and the vibe was chill. Kids, and grown up kids alike all had a great time. Thanks to everyone who came out. On to the pics…
