Wed Night Mountain Bike Ride - Green Mountain

We are running out of daylight so I'll probably only be posting a couple more Wednesday night rides. We will meet at the Rooney Road lot at 5:30 for a 5:45 departure time.
Based on the following rating scale, this will be a moderate physical and technical ride.
This rating system has 2 components: 1. A physical rating 1-5 and a technical rating 1-5. This scale is still in the works and is open to feedback by the way. Mountain bike meetup group rating scale:

    Nice ride, glade to see some new trail out there. I should have brought my glasses!

    May need to rest rather than ride, so if I don't see you...sorry for the last minute no-show....

    I have an old Trek I could bring, but it's a large, but it might work OK with the seat lowered. Also, what kind of pedals does your friend need? This has shimano, and I don't have anything else to put on it, unfortunately. Let me know if you still want me to bring it.

    Does anyone have an extra mens medium bike that could bring to the ride - my friend John is in town and couldn't bring his bike with him this time (some of you might remember him from the 3 sisters/Alderford ride - he's from Carolina)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
