Congratulations to all the Ohio Randonneur volunteers,
Debi Orr and Kelly Cox
You staged what one randonneur was heard to describe as an ‘Epic Ride”. I always say, ‘It’s only considered a good ride if there is a story’. Apparently the 28-42 degree temperatures and the 16-20 mph headwinds generated a lot of stories, including the last ten miles into the wind with absolutely no wind cover. MVP for the ride is Doug Oda who suffered all but the last five miles of the ride. It was getting dark, and he realized he did not have the proper lighting to finish within the rules, and he abandoned. Integrity.
