July Happenings: Tin Cup Challenge, Music on Main, Mountain Bike Festival
The big challenge is finding time for everything...but we do our best, happily.
Tin Cup Challenge fundraising race in Driggs. All proceeds go to area non-profits. Attendance was higher than ever, with over 1,000 participants; weather was perfect, and the vibe was great.
The Tin Cup race has distance options for everyone: marathon, half-marathon, 10K, 5K, and a fun walk. I raced the 5K, and kinda liked that nice short distance for a change.
Music on Main" event. It's an amazing social scene, with food, beverages, and some great music acts. As we sat with good friends last week, watching the sun set and the full moon rise, it felt like one big happy family.
Teton Valley Mountain Bike Festival. It starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday, with group rides, clinics, x-c race, live bands, bike shenanigans, and tons of free schwag. It really is amazing how many sponsors this event already has, and pre-registrations are way up over last year.
I'll be leading a Friday afternoon group ride myself, and Joanne is overseeing registration. Come join the fun!
Here's to summer sunshine, fun with friends, and a great weekend wherever you are.
