Thanking Our Supporters

We all know that the club’s biggest supporter and flag waver is Roy’s brother, Mark Rupert. He has the highest attendence rating after Roy and helps him mark the route each week.

Who’s there to welcome us with a smile and beer token when we check in? Mark! Who’s our water boy? Mark! Who’s there to literally pick us up when we’re down? Mark! Who keeps Roy in check? His brother, Mark!

So first and foremost, “Thank You, Mark!”

She manages to capture the joy of riding and beauty of the valley even as we’re huffing and puffing our way over hilltops.
