  1. In your advertising for this ride, it says that registration closes on Friday, October 19th. But then it says that the registration table is open the morning of the ride at 6:30. Can we register the morning of the ride?

  2. Hey everyone — sorry for the delay on getting this up here…

    From the ACTIVE.com website:

  3. Is there a way to get or buy the photos from the flickr site? I would like one of them at high quality. Thanks!

    1. Hey Louise! If you let me know which one you want, I’ll definitely email it to you! 🙂 Actually, I’ll also be posting up ALL of the photos in Hi-RES to this site today… 🙂 I have/had no intention of selling these… 😉

      Soooooo Enjoy!

      Will

  4. William.
    There was another gentlemen taking photos at the finish line that day. Will he be posting the photos somewhere?
    Thanks

    1. Hey Jonathan, YES… I am going to be getting in touch with the other photographer ASAP — We spoke at the century; and he is willing to share his photos. I’d love to see his photos — he was using a tripod. I forgot to bring mine! Doh!

      With his permission, I’ll post them to the same Flickr Set, giving him credit for his photos. When I have them uploaded, I’ll post something here — as well as post something to the BRBC Facebook account AND Yahoo Group.

      Thanks!,
      Will
