A big thanks to the sponsors- Wright Brothers brought out 4 sets of cranks, anodized in such festive colors. Thanks to Beyond Clothing, and Raleigh Bicycles as well.

Also thanks to Cazadores Tequila and New Belgium Brewing for the drink specials and all around support of the bicycle community. Brouwer’s Cafe loves bikes, and they love to see their bike racks in front of the building full to the brim. Show some support to them as well.

Charlie C took some great pictures that you can see on his FLICKR
