The Spokefest 2010 registration and packet pick-up at Mountain Gear this afternoon was a hectic 3-1/2 hours for the volunteers. That's a good thing. When we finished at 6:00 pm the count stood at over 1700 registered people. Tomorrow's weather looks promising so hopefully a good number of last minute registrations will occur. It would be great to hit 2000.
One gentleman I met is here for his third Spokefest. He lives in Cleveland, Ohio. You know you're doing something right if you can get someone to come here from Cleveland every year.
For those of you doing the ride, you'll meet Bill Bender at the finish line where he tries to give every rider a high five. Give him the high five and tell him thanks for making Spokefest happen.
