“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride.” ~John F. Kennedy

Here at BikeTown we couldn’t agree more. We love riding our bikes and want to help as many people as we can love riding their bikes, too.

July Road Time Trial Results

Wow - talk about timing. The clouds were dark, and it did rain on us a bit during the time trial, but it really wasn't bad and let up for most of the ride. Then, after everyone was in and Jim was reading out the FINAL time, the sky let loose. I've never seen the parking lot empty that fast! On the plus side, the weather made for a much cooler time trial than normal in July.

Here are the results:

1. Josh Brown - 24:19
2. Richard McLamore - 25:36
3. John Ring - 26:41
4. Jonathan Elswood - 26:54
5. JR Brock - 27:15
6. Chuck Patton - 27:27
7. Manny Cortez - 27:49
8. Justin Brown - 29:46
9. Brian Johnson - 29:51
10. Steven Riley - 30:15
11. Ben Galinak - 30:55
12. Richard Chengson - 31:16
13. Todd Sage - 31:47
14. Julie Elswood - 33:52
DNF - Craig Jones (mechanical)

See ya next month!
