Summer is starting to wind down, unfortunately, but Moxie Cycling’s calendar is still full! We had a blast last weekend riding in the Jesse James Bike Tour 2012 in southern Minnesota. The tour is run by the Northfield Rotary Club to celebrate the defeat of Jesse James Days in 1876. They invite you to “come for the ride, and stay for the raid,” where the failed bank robbery that led to the demise of the James-Young gang is re-enacted. This year the rides range from 10 to 100 miles, and you know that the Moxie team met the challenge and rode the Century route!
It was a 25 mph head wind day with rolling hills- not an easy task- but we had a great time riding with some of our Moxie ladies and men. As part of the ride we got spurs for our cycling shoes and squirt guns complete with holsters to keep us cool.
What a fun, but exhausting day! We are planning to make this an annual event, hopefully we can get more of you Moxie women signed up with us in 2013.
