A great result and a great time. Nothing to flame, and everything to praise. Rock on!

BTW, if you ever get to Philly, there's an entire club of handcyclists that rides every Saturday in the park. Also, in August French Creek State Park is hosting an outdoor event for the handi-capable, with handcycle events, adaptive canoes, and others.
