The Diverged Ride 2015 was a huge success! Twice the number of riders we had in 2014; A beautiful day for riding; perfect trail conditions; more great food that anyone could eat. Lots of smiles.
Here are words and images from some people that rode with us. If you have any posts or photos to add to this list, please let us know; we'd like to include everything here.
On Saturday morning at around 6:30, as the sun's first rays hit the tall windows of Ride Studio Cafe, we were suddenly fully awake. The sun seemed brighter and stronger than usual as we prepared for the coming crush of early season riders. Unfortunately, the smell of waffles kept distracting us from all the preparations for the day. Somehow we opened the doors on-time to the wave of riding locusts; those waves kept coming and coming throughout the morning. It was controlled mayhem. It couldn't have been more fun or gone more smoothly.
The crisp morning gave way to the sun's warmth and the rides began to roll out. On time! Eleven rides in all; more than 170 riders joined in. Great feedback and lots of smiles. A good way to begin the mixed-terrain season.

Clearly word spread fast about the ride because the next day, on Sunday morning, when we were out riding we came upon a group of riders doing the Diverged route. That was gratifying.
Thank you to all that joined us for the ride. We will remember this one for a long time.
We hope to see you on the trails!
