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 the Golds Gym parking lot at 6:00PM 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!

    I almost bailed on this ride as I wasn't feeling well. Glad I didn't. Riding & the post ride fun always makes me feel Bettah! :)) Welcome to all the new members! C-ya on the trails!

    FYI to those I chatted with about the Endo Vid. It's posted in the Discussion Forum and on YouTube. See link for a few laughs. ;)

    I ride a rigid frame hybrid. Will it be suitable for this ride? I have 700x38c road-ish tires on it right now. I did ride it around Jenkinson Lake a few weeks back.

      I've ridden GB a few times with my cyclocross bike with 28c knobbies. Having no suspension is ok for GB, but not having at least some knobbies on the tires would be a little more challenging I think. Or it might be more fun drifting the bike in the turns! Go with a low-ish tire pressure, should be fine, but be careful.

    • Kyle H.

      Man, if it were any other team besides that Pats, no problem, but I gotta watch it live with my pops!

    • Mitzi A.

      no worries Dave, no rider left behind... I'll sweep with ya... (keep in mind i'm new to the group so finding our way back will be guesswork! LOL) besides, the IPA and sNack my nurse so generously prepared for the tailgate can't be shared until I return. (gotta love a thoughtful care package!)

    Has anyone else gotten PO in the last 3 weeks from GB or Salmon Falls? Bryan & I have ridden the same trails together but I got and he didn't. Just curious...

    • Donald F.

      September 12, 2013

    • Mitzi A.

      Yes, a little bit on my left arm. Three small spots which have thankfully dried out.

      September 12, 2013

  • Mitzi A.

    A special request for Andy. Could you please bring those Austrian beer/lemonade combos. Those were the bomb. :-)

    Planning on it, unless I get mudsucked at work, big software update next Monday that we are buttoning up this week ...I'll bring my usual boring chips if I make it

  • Donald F.

    Hi again. What time do you think the realistic "roll-off" will be this Thursday? I have a meeting on Thursday, but I really need to hang with y'all again. My plan is to be dressed, ready to go, and drive up, skid, rollout the driver side, grab bike with one hand and slam door with other hand, and catch up to you just riding into the Cavitt parking lot.

    1 · September 10, 2013

    • Mitzi A.

      Hey Donald. I'm thinking 6:15. We'll see what Ron thinks. Hopefully the majority of the group will be there and ready to roll by 6. Can't make any guarantees on that. I'm sure you'll be able to find us and catch up to at least one group.

  • Koy S.

    i finally have lights! lol, thanks javi v.
