THE DAY OF THE TREAD, OCTOBER 28, 20073>
The Embassy Suites Hotel and Spa Balloon is inflated before the race start.
We love the Bug on Back costumes!
Tricore, a neighbor of Embassy Suites, was one of the event sponsors, and opened their parking lot to the 450 bicyclists.
Great nose, Janet!
Batman in his Batmobile
The race is on, Batman is ahead!
Perfecting the art of taking pictures behind my back while cycling.
These views were reminiscent of the Fiesta de Albuquerque Half Marathon, run along this same trail.
In the distance, (past the sexy, heterosexual guy on the left) the Green Fairy is seen heading for the 50 mile turn around.
Paulo and his group entertain the cyclists at the 25 mile turn around.
Great ghoulish race volunteer spirit.
Casa Esperanza volunteers cared for cyclists along the route.
The Casa Esperanza Women
The view to the East. Taking pictures while cycling became easier with practice.
The race finishes, and my arch enemy Batman poses for his victory picture.
I will catch you next year, Batman!
Thank you for the fun!
