Cap10k Noisemaker Ride 2008

Mon, Mar 31, 2008


(Disregarding the traffic laws never felt so GOOD! Oops! I may have spoken too soon.)

Another great year for Austin’s own Capitol 10k Run. For the Austin scooterists it started out at around 6:30am. Riding into town with all the new construction, the smell of pine and gypsum was lingering in the humid air. We met up at IHOP (like we always do), we donned out volunteer shirts and headed for the starting line. This is our 6th (maybe 7th?) year of helping with the event. Basically, before the race starts we have total control of 10,000 kilometers (meters Danny METERS) of downtown streets so we can pass out noise makers, t-shirts and the like. We got rained on a bit, but it only rained on us, it could never rain on our parade. Thanks again to Mikey for doing such a great job keeping this tradition rolling after all these years!

    10,000 Kilometers? Holy moly, did they have to run to the moon and back?

    Just giving you grief Steve, Thanks for dragging me out of bed. It was a blast.

    I think “Control of 10,000 KM of downtown road space” was wishful thinking. Thanks for the correction!

    A parade of 6 scooters? I can beat that with just MY scooters. LOL.

    You should have posted something before hand so others could come out and participate.
