NJ: 2008 Olde Mill Inn Tour of Basking Ridge, Part I

Today was "Labor Day", a national holiday. Traditionally, I have gone to watch the Tour of Basking Ridge criterium race so I thought it would be nice to continue this tradition on my first Labor Day back in the United States.

The "Tour" is based on a course of a 1.1 mile loop around the village of Basking Ridge that is repeated to log the required number of miles in each race. This year I decided to ride there from home and to arrive in time to watch the Pro, Category 1,2 and 3 race which would race a total of 25 miles.

  1. Hey Angel,

    Nice to see you at the race! I decided to try my hand at the Citizen's race and after some good coaching by Teddy and Josh was able to win it! Very proud to come home with a Gold metal. Hope to get to ride with you sometime this fall.
