so it turns out it only takes 8 years until we hit the weather jackpot for race're welcome.  i'm glad so many of you who have endured the worst years could enjoy the sunshine for once.  i'd like to say thanks to a couple key volunteers who do so much during race day so that i am also able to pedal my bike around, cheryl dralle and amy carlson.  our fantastic sponsors for donating swag and making the ride a little more rewarding (Scheels, Planet Bike, Rasmussen Bike Shop, Surly, Twin Six,, Sakari, Saris).  then to the best host in all the land bob at the cumming tap, the atmosphere at the tap simply cannot be matched!
ed and jen veak (t-shirt graphix) supplied the highly sought after 2016 CIRREM shirts and awards were sourced through the one and only squirrel @ ReCycled Artwerks
so thanks again and we'll see you all next year.

2016 registration

reminder registration goes live this friday, november 27 @ 9pm.  there are no refunds or transfers to prevent placeholders and dirty hoarders from reserving spots.  there will be no waitlist this year.  and please remember this ride takes place in the cold, nasty, hilly gravel roads in the middle of winter...don't sign up if there is a chance you will not attend.  that said we look forward to seeing your smiling grit covered faces at the end of february.
