    24 minute Winter Solstice

    In the spirit of the winter solstice, a group of us decided to run a shakedown of a 24min winter solstice race.

    The premice behind the event was to have a group of us enjoy the "winter" weather and to celebrate the pagen ritual, in our own way.

    The night started with a hike around Island lake in orangeville, followed by diner, then a few of us jumping on our bikes, in non-biking gear and ride the same loop that we had hiked. amazingly it was 24min of ride time. we did have a nice stop at island lake for our "aid" station which included Amsterdam Brewery Boneshaker , and a Mug root beer for the underage rider.

    The whole idea of this event was put out by the godfather Trailtrash, and a special thanks to him for bringing up the idea of a 24min race....

    The night was a huge success, with a good ride, good friends, and good beer at the end, next year is shaking up to be even more promising. For next year, we should have more than a 1 week window to organize the event, and maybe move it to Mono Cliffs...

    Pictures will follow soon!
