December 2019 Ride of the Month
Published on: 1/23/2020
There was one led ride in December. It was led by Troy Gilmore on December 21st, and it was called the Winter Solstice Ride. The 20 degree temperature at the beginning of the ride, made it an enduring challenge. Still, Troy and Andrew Asher were able to tough it out for 6 ½ miles. Troy, by default, also won the Ride Leader Incentive Award. Thank you, Troy.

There were no nominations for the Almost Anything Award during the month of December.
