    Hi John - any chance you could organize some weekend rides? all the events on this board take place during the work week...due to not getting out of work before 6pm I'll never be able to make them

    Hi John, thanks for the welcome message. I really enjoyed the Memorial Day/Play Day ride at Sprain Ridge. You have cool crew of Riders. I have been out sick since then. I am feeling better now and hope to join the group for a ride soon.

    Thanks for the help yesterday John- if you get no one to ride Thursday @ 5 and want to hit the trail with the same plan maybe 30 min later I would be up for it. I just don't want to hold anyone back.

    John, Welcome to the group!! I see you are from Peekskill. We had a meetup at the Peekskill Brewery last year. We'll probably go back again this year. Hope to see you at the next meetup. Mike

    Hey John, thanks for the welcome! I will keep an eye out. I can ride technical so I am not a beginner per say. I just need some additional work on the more high-level technical riding. Rocky decents, downhilling, some rock gardens that may be a bit more than I am used too, etc. Hopefully I can join up with you all soon!
