Clovis Big Hat Century - 6 April 2013

Saturday was the first annual Clovis Big Hat Century, a Fresno Cycling Club sponsored event held in conjunction with Clovis Big Hat Days.  The ride started at the Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis, Ca.

There were four rides: a Century (100+ miles), a Metric Century (65+ miles), a half Metric (35+ miles), and a Family fun ride (10 miles.)  The event was attended by about 170 riders.

There were 11 SAG vehicles spread out over the course, including 2 motorcycles.

It was a great day for a ride with perfect weather, from 50°-65°, and a light breeze.

A Big Hat Century organizational meeting on 4 April 2013 in a Starbucks parking lot (as Starbucks was packed with nowhere for us to sit).  Attended by Jen Collins (Registration), Mike Quiroz (Fresno Cycling VP), Nancy Sumaya (Fresno Cycling Board Member At Large), Dennis Ball (Fresno Cycling Club President), Rob Mavis (Radio Communications), & Doug Handy (Ride Director)
