Knobby Tire 2017 was a hit, and it was a hot one- literally and figuratively:). With temperatures pushing 90 degrees in late September, we were a bit surprised, but definitely excited to have a sun-filled day on the trails. Our 2017 Knobby Tire event met our goal, and with the help of our sponsors, we were able to raise over $5000 towards Empower Spinal Cord Injury! Huge thank you to our sponsors and partners (www.knobby-tire.squarespace.com/partners) and all of our dedicated volunteers, including our photographer and chili-extrodinaire, Lee Hollenbeck, and our absolutely fantastic Knobby Tire Committee members: Amy Fleischer, Kelly Spellman, Kirsten Prue (and Hannah Koch!), and Ryan DeRoche.
We had a great day out on the trails, and were so pumped to have Karen Eagan host a Ride Like a Girl Clinic with over 15 women learning how to tear it up on the trails. Bike-On, Northeast Passage, and GRIT were there with equipment and knowledge to help our adaptive riders get out on the trails. And with over 50 participants this year, our 2017 Knobby Tire was our biggest event yet! We can't wait to get started with our plans for our 2018 Knobby Tire Ride- hope to see you there!!
