LETTER: Rowing club did great job hosting P2P

I wanted to say thank you to all of the Passport to Pain volunteers that handled the bike ride on Saturday. It was my first time in any kind of organized bike ride, and I was impressed with the whole event. The morning registration was smooth and efficient. The volunteers at the check stations were very supportive and friendly, and they offered great food to help the bikers get up the next hill. The barbecue was great as well — food and service were fantastic. Great job to all the rowing club volunteers.
