PURRR......fect Night Out!

Last night the Mid-Atlantic Bellas met at the Cork bar for Happy Hour and meeting new Bellas. We had such a great time, this is sure to become a regular event!

A few folks had a hard time getting into the city, but by the end of the evening we had well over 14, much to the dismay of the poor hostess, Diane!

We talked about road and criterium racing, but most were interested in hearing more about cyclo-cross.....I think there will be a few more interested in trying that out this season! Bella Melanie Swartz hosted a fantastic CX clinic on Wednesday, and Nikki and Kimberly were proud of their top Bella!
