Recipes from BikeMaine part 2

Camp Wekeela Flank Steak My first experience cooking with the MFSC crew for BikeMaine was in 2017 for the Pathway to the Peaks ride. I came up in the middle of the ride on Wednesday. My role was to be fresh blood joining in the middle of the week to help everyone else who is running on fumes. That first day in Rangely was relatively easy, figuring out how everything worked, what I needed to do, how to feed 500 people in an hour…you know simple stuff.
