SpringFest (Metric Century) Ride Brookshire, Texas
March 25, 2017
I would like to say it was a great bike ride, with great weather, with great food and entertainment after the ride. But by far and away the item that weighs heavy on my mind were 2 riders participating in this event that got killed and another injured in a vehicular crash by a deranged driver. Ironically one of the items the ride t-shirt had on it said "share the road". Wow, such a mindless, tragic, sad day.
Aside from that downer, this is a ride I have done many times. Once upon a time this was known as the Novemberfest ride. Obviously after too many bad weather days in the fall it has moved to the spring time. The ride benefits citizens with intellectual disabilities, a very worthwhile charity.
