We had near-perfect weather for the 2017 400K, though it was a bit warm after the lunch stop at Green Mountain Preserve (mile 115). There was no rain, and the winds were light. It was warm to start, but those finishing well after dark had a bit of a chilly ride back into the Inn on the Green.
Special congratulations to Mary, William, and Josh, all of whom completed their longest rides ever and their first 400Ks.
Special thanks to Lisa Portelli and Laura Stephens for feeding riders at the lunch stop, and to Laura and Judith Longley for feeding them again at the finish.
The route was preridden on Monday, March 20, by Longley, Rozelle, and Thompson.
27 riders started, and the 23 finishers are listed below. Congratulations to all!
