After Charlie's race, he shed his racing gear and headed out on his bicycle with buddies, and they spent a glorious day mostly unsupervised exploring the area. The event is held at a YMCA camp, and there is a lake and trails (not part of the course) for them to check out. The camp sells food, everything from brats to pork chops, and it is a great fundraiser for them. People gather around the picnic tables throughout the day, as different classes race at different times. Mike did a bunch of filming of the C rider race, and then it was time for him to get suited up for his own event.
I would think the worst part would be having to load everything up at the end of the day, when you are sore and tired, but Mike is used to it, and even does it with a smile.
It's going to be a really good summer.
