High Rollers

The fabled Iron Horse Bicycle Classic celebrated its 38th year of cycling mania last weekend. The four-day festival on wheels included the infamous 50-mile odyssey to Silverton, the downtown criteriums, a time trial, a kids race, live music, a gear swap and all kinds of homage to two-wheeled travel. Heres a look at the festivities.

Champions of tomorrow: Kids 5 years and younger take to a wet
starting line at the kids race on Sunday morning. Lydia Dubit closes in on the finish line during the Sunday
morning kids race. All hail the cruiser. A Cruiser Critter has a quick cool down on Sunday afternoon. The freaks came out of the woodwork for Sundays Cruiser
Crit. Racers anxiously prepare for the long haul to Silverton on
Saturday morning.
