Anyone know where I can get a cowbell? Seriously; I’m in the market for one.
This past Saturday, I took my girls to the 16th Annual Hare Racer mountain bike race at Heritage Park. I’ve known about this event since moving to Adrian, but this is the first opportunity I’ve had to attend. I’m so glad I did. It was awesome, and my girls had a fantastic time, watching all that was happening and cheering on the racers.
The adults raced at 9:30a. Their route consisted of two 5.8-mile circuits. I can’t seem to locate the results anywhere online, but the winner finished in just under an hour.
The adult race was then followed by a series of kids races in different age brackets. Unfortunately, I was only able to hang around for the first two events, ages 3-4 and ages 5-6, both of which rode on paved surfaces. The older age groups, however, took to the woods.
It was so great seeing so many people tearing it up on their bikes. But I think I enjoyed even more being amid all the pre- and post-race activity around the parking lot. There was a nice cross-section of folks from the local cycling community on hand, and it was really cool just to be taking in some local bike culture vibe.
