The riders that participated in this year’s Chili Ride faced challenging winds with gusts in the 40 mph category. It was challenging for the ride leaders to come up with routes that had some protection from the wind.

Thanks to Dean Mathias for leading the Leisure Paced Ride and Dave Kealey for leading the Mid Paced Ride.

A big thanks to Becky Luth for setting up the shelter at Bettendorf’s Middle Park Lagoon shelter and making vegetable soup, muffins, pumpkin bars and scotch-a-roos.
