Ride Summary: Hawks Nest 2017

Preliminary results have been posted at:
Results will be submitted in a couple of days to RUSA, and then become final pending ACP certification.

Well, it wasn't that hot this time, the clouds and shade kept the heat manageable, and all riders made it in before the heavy rain

A total of 23 out of 24 riders finished in good time for a 96% completion rate -- congratulations and well done to all!

Finishers were in good spirits. Although Hawk's Nest isn't an easy course, somehow it's a fast course, and as usual there were many excellent times. Unfortunately, course record holder, Scotty S, had a minor mechanical, preventing him from lowering the record below 7 hours. Maybe next time.

The next event, part of the R12 series, will be held on August 12th.  It's a reversed version of last year's infamous YARRR 200k route with a start/finish in Easton, PA.  The route crosses from the Delaware to the Schuylkill and back again through the heart of Bucks and Montgomery counties, passing many points of interest along the way. Of course, because of the reversal, this time we will instead go from the Delaware to the Schuylkill and back again. Also, because of the reversal, we decided against Beer for Breakfast at Weyerbacher , cutting the much maligned South Side hill the brewery sits on. Also eliminated is the Pottstown Controle of Doom, replaced with a clean, new Super Wawa.   Event details will be posted soon at the web site.
