We all scream
A big thanks to Ron Swan of the Snowboard Outreach Society for buying all the riders ice cream on Sunday’s Colorado River Ride. Swan, director of S.O.S., had this brilliant idea for a surprise breakfast for hot, sweaty riders. It was amazing to see so many talented riders outside of France! Thank you, Carrie Z. The Ice Cream Lady.
