2008 Iceman Cometh

Another great showing by the Dark Horse Ladies in the always challenging 27 mile point to point Iceman Cometh mountain bike race from Kalkaska to Traverse City on Saturday, November 8, 2008. Sounds like the weather cooperated, and the snow/sleet held off until later in the day.

Susan Schubel - 6th Place Pro Women
Janet Grimm - 6th Place Sport/Expert Women 45+
Kerry Block - 12th Place Expert Women 35-44

Congrats, ladies!!!

Fall Riding Cont'd...Drainpipe Loop Ride

Five Dark Horse Girls joined in on the annual Ann Arbor Drainpipe Loop ride on 11/2/08. Billed as an old school mountain bike ride and color tour, we managed about 12 miles before the rain foiled our plans for 25+....

The colors were a little past peak, but still spectacular:

Jody tears up a leafy downhill! Is that a lime green miniskirt, Jode?

Andrea follows not far behind!

Lynn navigates a truly old school half rotten bridge...could cyclocross be in her future?

What a great way to say goodbye to Fall!!!

And here's a shout out to everyone going up to Iceman next weekend! GOOD LUCK!
