HiLo Ride and Dougstock 2009 - wrapup and pics

What happened when the Columbus high tech community intersected with the low impact mission of the Columbus biking community?

We got the HiLo Bike Ride – a rolling and rocking, two-day bike ride featuring a 50-mile scenic ride, overnight camping on a beautiful organic farm, live music, great food, and a community testament to the use of bikes as a true means of transportation. All organized, promoted and staged by the central Ohio technology and biking community.

With over 50 riders this inaugural event was arousing success..Thanks to all our riders, organizers (Sandy, Steve, Mark, Willie, Dale, Bob,and Jim) SAG support (Mary and Paul) and especially Doug Morgan for hosting this incredible event. We'll see you all at next year's event.

Here's some pics from the event:


Here's what some of our riders had to say:

This is the beginning of something really big. Let's keep building on it. Mark
The most fun I have had this summer ... and I met some awesome technologist and environmentalists to boot. A huge thank you to all organizers - you guys are more than visionaries, you are truly making a difference.
I had a great time for my first meetup with this group. Everyone was friendly and engaging. Many thanks to Ben & Doug and all the SAG team. The route featured the some of the best Central Ohio scenery on gently rolling roads. I wish I could have stayed longer at Dougstock; perhaps next year"
Great ride. The roads were very nice and well marked. Great group of people. The farm was awesome. Plan to make this an annual ride.
Thanks to all who made this event possible. The ride was beautiful, Doug's farm is wonderful and the conversations where great! Any thoughts to do it again in the fall? I'm happy to help. Thanks again!

This was just so much fun! The well organized festivities, well supported ride and amazing food/booze that followed made for a fantastic weekend. The people and conversations were stimulating and engaging, it was a great group. Thanks CTL and Doug and all the volunteers for making this happen!
