Unfortunately, I thought I was going to be really disappointed for a while, because OMBA (who had originally sponsored the ride) canceled it for this year. Luckily, the people at the Ocala Bicycle Center and Greenway Bicycles raised the ROLD from the dead and put on the event themselves, providing food and drinks at the Ross Prairie trailhead and taking donations for OMBA.

Mom and I weren't the only ones who went on the ride without costumes, but the people who did looked like they put some thought into them, and were really fun. Here are pictures of some of them.
