Kids Race Free!

So, off we went, the SFMC Race Committee, to the Lodi Cycle Bowl …

Ace Cafe Rob and all his friends who have been been coming to the club to watch MotoGP the last few seasons have been a huge help in raising the necessary funds for the Lodi Cycle Bowl’s “Kids Ride Free” event this season.

It was 104 degrees in Lodi, and I heard it was 106 degrees down on the clay track … Which sounds awful, but in the event really was not too painful …

The Harley ran well … Ricky Pharr helped me get it back on the road recently … Last time I had it registered was in 2009 …

Trophies! Yay!! We payed $970 worth of race entries for kids under thirteen, around thirty kids I think … We also passed the hat and donated $100 for the “Dash for Cash” race for the adult experts … Racing ended around 9:30 pm, and we enjoyed a cool ride home …

Thanks again to Ace Cafe Rob and company!
