Hello Gang~

It's that time of year again when the sun is out longer and we can ride our bikes after work. Come out and join us for a "social" MTB ride on Thursday nights. We will meet at Lakeside Beverages at 6:30PM and peal off 15 minutes later. Don't be late or you can always just catch up to us on the trails. We should have about 90 minutes of riding time. Those of you who would like to ride longer, I would strongly suggest bring out some lights for your bike. We will break out into groups depending on rider turn out.

Novice Group: 6-9 miles of both single track and fire roads. Pace is casual and several ride leaders will ensure you stay on track and return to your cars safely. Elbow and knee pads are recomended. A helmet is a must! Ride at your own risk and have lots of fun! Be sure to bring plenty of water.

Intermediate Group: 9-12 miles, pace moderate and skill level medium. Two ride leaders will keep you on track and within rider format. Helmet is a must and a well tuned bike will keep you moving with the experienced group.

Fast Intermediate Group: 12-15 miles, pace will be aggressive. regroups will be short and two ride leaders will keep you pushing through the single track trails at a fast pace. Helmets and a well tuned bike needed. Bring plenty of water!

All groups will travel in the same direction. This ride is great for beginners and Pros alike. Please bring out a well tuned bike, a helmet and plenty of water. As always, ride safely and at your own risk. We will tail gate after the ride so drinks and food to share would be cool too. Happy trails!

    Hey all you Thursday night regulars, you know who you are (EXCEPT RON, cover your eyes). Mr. BBQ is looking a little tired and not cooking properly. Ron has lugged that Q to the rides and manned the station for years. I think it would be a nice gesture for us to pitch in on a new one. Soooo, if everyone (at least 42 peeps) pitch in about $5 we can get him a nice replacement. What say you!!!! See u there with your $.

    The weather was perfect and the pace of the ride was great. It was good to have a variety of riding levels besides just fast and faster.

      Its how us old people spell "ketchup," back in the day before the phonetic spelling became mainstream.

    • Donald F.

    Non bike related. I've got a HP Officejet 6500 all in one printer that is free to a good home. If someone is tech saavy and knows how to tweak the print cartridges, then you've got a good unit. Will bring it on Thursday with the original manuals. If no one claims him, I'm taking him to the Goodwill on Friday.
