This week’s recap leads off with softball.
Yes, Team Evesham has a softball team. At least it did for this past weekend’s Fallen Hero’s Softball Tournament in Evesham Twp. And our team made it to the quarter finals. Congratulations to; Kevin Comber, Nadine Cottle, Ed Gonzales, Dave Humphreys, “VA” Onofrio, Carrie Salisbury, Lisa Sleeper, Scott Santos, Jim Sweet, Mike Vindick, with Sunday’s sponsor Dave Thompson of CARSTAR Lakeside Collision.
Now to cycling – Sunday morning the sun was shining and the temperature was about 70 at the start of the ride. A near perfect day that put any thoughts of the previous Sunday’s rain far into the distant past. Taking advantage of the ideal conditions, we rode out to Olde World Bakery for a few sweets and to bask in the sun for a short while before returning to Rastelli’s for more eats and socialization.
Next weekend is Labor Day and that means summer is coming to an end, but not cycling. We are now entering the best season for riding; gorgeous days, moderate temperatures, and beautiful fall foliage. Don’t even think about putting that bike away. Come ride with us each Sunday.
Foster 100 – Registration Closes September 1st
Help make a difference in the life of a returning US service member. Join your teammates on Saturday, September 15 as they ride in the Foster 100, an incredible ride from Philadelphia to Cape May. This ride goes onto the Benjamin Franklin Parkway and then over the bridge into New Jersey. Once you are in NJ the terrain is flat and the roads are relatively free of traffic.
This organization is 100% volunteer, there are no professional fundraisers, the goal is to purchase and train service dogs for returning veterans. These dogs are provided to ease the effects of combat. As a rider you will travel with a small group (platoon) that rides at the same speed, just like our rides. You will have motorcycle escort and a SAG vehicle with each platoon. Plus there is incredible food and a smashing after party. All riders receive a Foster 100 team jersey. Bus transportation is provided to return both you and your bike to Philadelphia.
There are only 3 or 4 of spaces remaining so join the other Team Evesham riders in this spectacular ride, go here to register. The ride is limited to only 200 cyclists, don’t miss this event!
