Cadillac Challenge - 20th anniversary

Despite rain, wind and heavy fog, 7 local riders made the journey over to MDI on Sunday, Oct. 2 for the 20th anniversary edition of the Cadillac Challenge. The ride started off in rain which eventually tapered off for awhile, then came back. It was an off and on kind of day - rain and wind, with some moments of calm. The surf slamming the rocky shoreline along the Park Loop road was quite a site. Due to poor visibility (none) and heavy winds, the official end of the ride was moved off the top of Cadillac Mt. That didn't stop us from riding up there. As expected, the views from the top were nil.

All in all, a great day of riding with some old friends and some new ones - the best part of the Cadillac Challenge. And a new tradition was born I think - dinner and beers afterwards at Atlantic Brewing / Mainely Meat, just down the road. Hope to see you next year!!
