As a volunteer, I was able to get up close to the action of the bike racing seeing some of the top racers from the area compete right in the middle of downtown Pleasanton. As a former bike racer, I know it is a rare treat to get to race in a downtown location in front of large crowds. Most amateur races occur in non-descript office parks or warehouse districts.
I went home last night tired and humbled by the generosity and support the residents of Pleasanton showed by coming out and participating in the events, cheering on the racers, supporting our local businesses and helping raise money for ALS.
I hope Pleasanton and Pleasantonians continue to support this fantastic event and cause for many more years to come.
