The Original Growler will Remain a Non-USA Cycling Event in 2013

(email from Dave W.)
Growler Riders,
Wow, nothing more than hundreds of responses many of them quite passionate (and with colorful language for emphasis!) Just about every position was represented.

The Growler will remain unsanctioned by USA Cycling in 2013 for a variety of reasons and I won’t go into them here. So nothing changes. If you are a UCI licensed pro and concerned about your participation, please contact us.

Again, the sole reason we organize this event is to raise money for our trails. Thanks for supporting our trails with your hard earned money! For that hard-earned money, we are only trying to give you two things in return, well maybe three.

1) A great day on your bike. Smiles and grimaces all around. This is far and away goal number one.

2) A pretty good social after the event. Food, drink and friends, new and old.

3) A reason to come back to Gunnison to ride: good trails, well maintained trails, and one day, new trails.

I’d like to be able to respond back to every one of you that took the time to present your thoughts on this subject, but that’s not going to happen. Thanks for supporting trails where you live, IMBA (if you choose to support them), and the Growler/Gunnison Trails.

Enjoy your preparation for the Growler!
