Well, I went out today and gathered the remaining ingredients for this years trophies. I figured it would be nice if the winners could take home a bit of their accomplishment so I decided to gather some rock from a squishy section of this years course. Now, when I left the house with an empty bag the idea seemed great, but when I filled the bag (see photo below) I realized that collecting forty pounds of gravel to create a memorable trophy with just a messenger bag and a bicycle is not my best idea ever. Having said that, and being done with the whole project, I cannot think of another way to do it. So I guess this is the ritual then. Which means next year, about this time, you can expect to see me hauling rock the old fashioned way, with blood, sweat and gears.
