A Big Thank You to All Who Participated and Volunteered in the Fall Memorial Century

Michael Lemos:

Another High Desert Memorial Fall Century in the books. Thanks to our awesome volunteers who spent the day supporting our riders. Registration crew, sag dudes, rest stop hosts and finish line lunch ‘caterer’…You all did the High Desert Cyclists proud!

Special thanks to Bicycle John’s Lancaster, Benz Sanitation and Starbuck’s for your support. And all the work that goes on behind the scenes, the advertising, permits, insurance, routes, reserving the College parking lot and just talking it up!

Our volunteers included Charlene Duran, Diana Miranda, Pat Hogan, Kevin Walsh, Colin Baird, Rich Coffman, Rob Laughton, Lu Quinn, Bob Macdonald, Elaine Macdonald, Michele Chavez, Sarge Chavez, Tony Miranda, Mark Stiver, Greg Ebbert and my very own specialist volunteer, Nancy Lemos.

Michele Chavez:

Thanks to all the amazing riders in the Fall Memorial Century, Metric Century, and 25-mile ride. It was incredible watching you all participate and brave our Antelope Valley winds to complete your rides. I salute you!

We received this comment from Eric Bruins of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, who rode the Century yesterday:

New favorite roads up in the western Antelope Valley. Like, Solvang quality. Want to come back.

Eric also sent these spectacular photos.
