The three bike types they listed were Velo, Tandem, and Special. Ron's was listed as "Special" so I assume it was a recumbent.

Congratulations Ron. [and also congrats to my friends Linda, Greg, and Lisa who also finished].

The weather this year has been horrendous, from what I understand it apparently has been raining most of the time. Because of the weather there have been a lot of DNF this year.

Ron, you deserve a special congratulation for perserving through all that bad weather.
