Fledgling Fun Ride

To all my fellow mountain bikers:

Come join us as we master the ins and outs of the Granite Bay trail. This ride is designed with the novice and more experienced rider alike. No rider will be left behind. There will always be someone around to ensure that everybody feels safe and has a good time.

Mountain biking is an exciting sport that can be enjoyed by everyone who knows how to ride. It does, however, present some additional challenges compared to the average neighborhood ride. Master these basic skills and turn those obstacles into something to look forward to. We will reserve plenty of time to tackle those hills and master those turns with confidence. Perhaps our more experienced riders can show us how to navigate through the technical spots with ease.

All abilities are welcome! We will meet at the Cavitt Junior High parking lot at 1:00 pm and start riding 15 minutes later. Expect to be out on the trails for at about 90 minutes or longer. Depending on rider turn out, we may break up into groups mixing riders of different levels together!

Please bring a well-tuned mountain bike. Remember to bring a spare tube and plenty of hydration (water or electrolyte beverage) and a light snack if needed. HELMETS ARE ALWAYS REQUIRED. Please ride at your own risk.

We will enjoy some mountain bike sodas and yummy treats after the ride. Hope to see you on the trails!

    Wow, my legs are pumped; first ride in 20 years and I will say it was fun. Thanks Dephni for holding the ideal of fun today! You know Bob, of Bob's Donuts, with his little business sign just a block from the school parking lot, almost had me:)

    Thanks for taking the lead in Mitzi's absence, and thanks for waiting for me. Next time I'll try and remember to eat before the ride (bonehead move). Also, thanks to Sean for keeping me company until I recovered and then riding back with me. Hopefully next time I'll keep up better.

    Just rolled my ankle in the garage. :-( A bit swollen will have to sit this one out. Ugh!

    Weather is going to be nice and hot. Drink plenty of water beforehand. I think some nice cold ones after the ride is called for. :-)

    This will be the first time that I put tires to the dirt in... Hmmm, 20 years, wow; that's a long time ago... Looking forward to a bit of exercise and fun.

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.
