Despite early light rain, high winds and below normal temperatures, 400 bicyclists rode from Sierraville around Sierra Valley on 30, 42 or 62-mile routes. Riders reported a fun time yet each described the wind as a challenge. Most were from Truckee and Lake Tahoe and Reno but many were from as far away as the bay area and Lodi.
At the same time as the Tour, the Assembly hosted a congregation of Missionettes overnight at the church hall which created an interesting and exciting environment.
Yours Truly worked the rest stop in Loyalton at the Assembly of God Church parking lot. Riders appreciated the scenic views and posed for photos in front of the pastures, the sign and the Loyalton rock.
