Beautiful weather, comfortable temperatures, happy smiling riders, a great new venue, and so many volunteers stepping up to make this years Primavera a success. This year’s event was a great tribute to Ed Tanaka who wore many hats as he volunteered throughout the years for the FFBC. It took 5 volunteers to take on the jobs he did each year for the Primavera, which shows the type of dedication he had to this club. Ed would have been pleased to see how well the whole day’s event rolled out!

Dear Gary and the FFBC family,
Yes, Ed is and would be proud. His presence was felt in the good weather, amazing rider's attitudes, and volunteer dedication. This is a one of a kind bike club. I am blessed to be part of it!
