2012 Gran Fondo Lives Up To It’s Name

To say the Gran Fondo Ephrata is a hard ride is an understatement, even on a nice day.  This was not a nice day.  It was a day that any sane person would avoid outdoor activities.  They surely would not consider riding a bicycle on 80 miles of primitive Central Washington back roads.   Despite a bleak forecast 81 hard cyclists did just that.  There were muddy gravel roads to contend with as well as rain, snow, fog, wind, even a little hail.  It was an epic day indeed and  I am thoroughly impressed with each and every rider who crossed the finish line!
