Letters | We need to welcome, support visiting teams
April 6, 2012 · 10:18 AM
It was great to see the University of Washington Cycling Team do their Criterion race here in North Bend on the March 24-25 weekend.
Only problem was, no one showed up to cheer on the riders. The only people I saw there were the riders themselves from the UW and from other schools around the country.
These types of events are great for the city, puts us on the map. We should try to support them when they visit. And yes, they do spend money in our town...I saw many of them at QFC and North Bar & Grill having lunch.
