Gonna Go 'Round in Cycles

Yesterday was the second annual MCC bike challenge with 40 and 10 mile courses, and nearly 80 people joined us on campus under cloudless skies for a simply breathtaking day of cycling through Bedford, Carlisle, and Concord.

The event was a real family affair, with multiple young children joining the mix, venturing out for the 10 mile loop.  Thank you to our friends over at the Cycle Loft in Burlington who helped everyone fine-tune their bikes before heading out.

 

Thanks also to all of the volunteers, both from within the college and without, who staffed our water stops.  And believe me, with temperatures hovering around 80 degrees, the water stops were in full use as hydration stations!  All of the proceeds from the event will benefit the MCC Foundation.

Hope you can join us next June for our third outing, but there's no way we can guarantee the kind of weather we had yesterday!

Thanks and congratulations to all the riders and volunteers who showed up to make this event such a success!  The spirit of community and cameraderie was overwhelming!  Yet another example of why we are truly "the community's college".

The Bike Challenge was a fun event!  Not only was it the first time this year my husband and I got to ride our bicycles, but we shared this wonderful, beautiful day with a terrific group of people!
