April Fools Rewind

We're back to normal at this point, but man was the beginning of April hectic! I went to Japan for a few weeks in late March, and returned with only a week to go until the Fun Ride. I quickly gave up any preconceived ideas of actually recovering from jet lag, and continued with the preparations. Seiya and a crew from Depot showed up on Thursday, and along with the arrival or Ellie and Dustin from Seattle (Dustin was throwing the Fast Friday event on, um...Friday), the time for work was drawing to a close.

Luckily, the event went off without any trouble, and about 350 participants wove their way around the city doing random stupid things before arriving at the packed finish at Tattooed Mom's. When it was all said and done, Baba from Philly (by way of Yokohama, Japan) won as the best overall fun rider. Big thanks to all of our sponsors, Mom's, and of course all of our amazing volunteers.
