    Sheep Mountain Challenge

    Anyone else doing this? They have a facebook page that shows two races and a recreational ride next Saturday:

    35 mile Fat Tire Bike race starts at 9:00am $35 entry
    20 mile Fat Tire Bike race starts at 10:00am $35 entry
    @10 mile recreational ride starts at 10:30am $10 entry
    Sheep Mountain Lodge will be open for lunch!
    Soup to warm up with post race/ride

    It looks fun so I signed up for the 20. Anyone else have going or have any more information on the races? Here are a few pics from their face book page...

    How do you feel Lars? Are you sore? I feel like I got run over by a Volkswagon full of women heading to the Over-Eaters-Anonymous Convention.
    Thanks for a great day everyone!
