Tri-Town Bike Race a Success!!!!!!!

Team WOE leads out the peloton for the 33.3 mile charity race!

This event was organized to help raise money for the local Tri-Town Summer Festival (Brasher Falls, NY) and with over 60 individuals participating in either the 33.3 or 6 mile races, they were able to make over $1,300.

WOE had 6 members representing the team that day and finished 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 respectfully. However, it was not about winning, it was about showing that WOE is not just a bunch of racers, but a group of people that care about the community and would like to support it any way we can.

We look forward to future community events and hope to see you out there as well!!!!!!!!!

Also noteworthy for this post is team member Ashton Momot's participation in the Tour de Cure, choosing the 100 mile course, and raising a good amount of money to help support diabetes research earlier this year.

  1. Yes, this year I ended up raising over $500 for the ADA, and last year I raised over $1000. It's a great event and I hope more people can ride it next year!
