So Boulder's finest chamois-wearing crowd traded in their lycra and helmets for some finer apparel and linen table cloths for its annual fund raising banquet. It was a RIOT and all for a great cause: Trail advocacy for the fat tire set!
Thanks to Oskar Blues, we all had our fill of FREE Pale Ale and Old Chub (make note to self: Old Chub is like 10% alcohol! Limit to 3...strike that TWO...of those bad boys). The night was filled with great speeches including our Mayor Shaun McGrath who's leaving to go work with Obama campaign (and a MASSIVE supporter of the VBP and biking in general), the VBP committee indicating our massive momentum and fund raising as well as BMA award winning speeches. These are the folks who volunteer to make trails for ALL of us to ride.
I had my CrackBerry firing off shots of random folks doing stupid things while high on Old Chub, but my home girl Sonya got some great photos and also has a nice write up on her blog.
I'd make this a sure thing next year if you ride trails anywhere near Boulder!
