Unseasonably cold for July…MISERABLE
Spending the day with friends raising money for scholarships…PRICELESS!

The 13th annual BOSS ride will go down in history as the first time we hit nasty weather.  But, the support for our scholarship was unwavering and it made the end games at Torge’s even more fun. Who called ahead and ordered extra hot coffee? A special shout out to our friends from the Office of the Chancellor who year after year come down from the metro to help us raise money.  In fact, many of our riders are here year after year.  We thank you for your consistent support for students.
A major reason for our success has been because of the generous donations from local companies. Our local business and industry partners have helped us with the donation of prizes to be given away during a raffle on the day of the event. We also are able to provide water, pop, and snacks to our riders through sponsorships. A Special thank you to all of our sponsors!

The greatest predictor of weather must not be the forecast (which was 0% rain) but whether or not you took your rain gear out of the saddle bag at the last minute (which we did!). Of course, the weather will be great in 2014 so save the date for the 14th annual BOSS ride on July 26.  Check back at this site later for more info and pictures.

Thanks again…See you next year and ride safe!
