I just heard from bike community mastermind and uber event promoter Ayleen Crotty that the final tally for Sunday’s Worst Day of the Year Ride was a whopping 1,525 people. That’s an amazing turnout and over twice the amount of riders they had last year.
The big turnout was a cause for celebration from organizers and sponsors…but it made for a challenging day for some participants. Over in the forums, I noticed this account from a disgruntled rider. You can also read Ayleen’s gracious response.
I think it’s important for us to realize that the people behind many of these great events are not making tons of money and they’re doing a lot of work so we can have fun on our bikes. Thanks again to all the sponsors and organizers for such a great event!
