We could not have done it without the efforts of two individuals in particular. Krista McNamee, from the Century Cycles store in Rocky River, rode an astonishing 5,671 miles during the 5-month challenge period, placing her as the #4 rider overall in the Cleveland area, the TOP female rider, and the ONLY female rider in the Top 10! Great job, Krista!
Also, team member and former Century Cycles staff member Neil Adams came in #7 overall in the Cleveland area with 5,151 miles ridden during the Challenge! Woo-hoo, Neil!
By the way, Krista and Neil do a lot of their riding together with a few other friends. They have ridden all over Northeast Ohio, including the popular Ashtabula County Covered Bridge Loop, many of the Pedaling to Lunch routes, and many more routes of their own creation. So if you're looking for advice on where to ride your bike, talk to Krista or Neil!
