A FABULOUS fall weekend filled with mountain bike trails, kids on bikes, giddy coaches gladly volunteering to ride the course again, a frigid water hole filled with laughter, a unicorn nest (aka, hammock city (Visualize six hammocks in one black walnut tree)), five camp stoves and a mini-grill, tents of all colors and sizes, a multi-team Pot Luck Feast, viewing Saturn’s rings via the telescope in the observatory, a sunrise to inspire, and 21 riders representing Colonial Revolution in race 2 of the NICA series. You can’t make this stuff up. It really happened! #Thankful4ColonialRevolution #RiderRollCall

We love our sponsors for keeping us pedaling. Their logos look particularly good framed by the mountains at Stokesville Campground and many of our team members and coaches.
Welcome to the team, Coach Chris! Clearly, you are in for a good time.
I asked about his first ride with the team. Chris said, “They don’t need to be motivated!”
We love seeing other NICA jerseys mixed in with our Colonial Revolution blues. #WoodberryForestTigers #W&Mmtb
In celebration of the completion of the first week back in session for our local public schools, let’s solve some math problems. Although not all of our student athletes are pictured above, Coach Mike took a count at practice last night of riders who will be participating in the “group ride” this Sunday.
Problem 1: If 21 of our 27 student athletes are conflict free and thus plan to attend, what percentage of our team will be riding in Race 1 of the fall NICA series hosted by Miller School of Albemarle? 21/27=78% That is significant.
Problem 2: Solve for X. Sunday group rides are averaging 30 people. THIS Sunday’s ride will likely number 300 riders. What is the factor of increase? 30x=300 300/30=10 I guess that means we can look forward to TEN times the fun!
