Speaking of roadies, here's one that oughta strike a cord for many of you: Blue Marsh.
Blue Marsh was our first (everyone remembers their first don't they?) and by all accounts it was a real marathon but with the proverbial happy ending. But this was a marathon by middle school standards - you have to remember that we were literally "roadie virgins" at the time (December '06). We're all grown up now, have sold our Huffy bikes, and learned a thing or two about changing tires in the field (anyone remember the 15mm wrench episode?).
Treat yourself to our ride report from Blue Marsh - it will bring back fond memories for many of you and should spark that fighting spirit in everyone. Food for thought anyway...
