Ayy lmao it’s a weekly update! Big week for ERTC as we’ve had great showings at the Wednesday Night Cross races, the DV100, and Beans ‘n’ Barley / Pumphouse Cross. We spread ourselves wide, but never thin! (Ok that sounded a lot better in my head…) Anywho, a reminder to please bring lights on ALL mid-week rides. Sun sets really early now, so please be aware. Also a reminder that our clothing store is always open, so if you need warmer clothing, now is the time to buy!
