Veronica and Edgar joined the Skagit County Tulip Festival's official ride, the 60 mile 2013 Tulip Pedal (which actually turned out to be 70 miles with headwinds that could stop you at your tracks according to Veronica). The course may have been flat but the conditions in the area create deadly headwinds that make you wish you were part of a professional time trial team with their aero bikes, helmets and suits. Nevertheless,the scenery was gorgeous and the company, as always, enjoyable.

The rest of the guys, Dondi, Arlene, Rene, Bong, Cris, Marisa and newbies Aldwin and Rudy braved the Seattle area rain to do the 62 mile Renton to Enumclaw loop. The distance itself and the weather would have been enough training but the last 12 miles of rolling hills really did a number on all of them. It was a hard ride but as with any Team Mang ride, it's the company that makes it worth it.
