Brownwood Bike Rally

This is the second year I've volunteered for the Brownwood Bike Rally, and the first year I raced it. Well, it was my first cross "race." Non-sanctioned, and since I did the Bs I feel like it was more like a beginners sort of thing. Very fun. 

Atlanta City Councilwoman Mary Norwood was kind enough to speak some words of encouragement at the beginning of the day.

I was the bike escort of the Kid's Races. It was great to see them do their races and also be there for the finishes. It was great to see all the support they received from the community and families.

Yours truly sporting the escort outfit.

The racing afterwards was great. The field was a mix of Cross Cat 5s. The focus was on having fun - after the road season, it's a welcome change of pace.
