Will be doing a 50/50 raffle to benefit Team Red if enough people show up.
The distance will be about 25 miles give or take a mile. This will be an easy ride for all new riders so come out and join me for the ride.
This is a great ride around Bartow mostly on the Fraiser trail and should be a chance to meet some new friends! We will roll out at 10:00 a.m., so get there a bit early, browse the store, in general allow adequate time to get there and get organized (unload bike, inflate tires, etc.). Will do it as a "no drop" ride, meaning we will try to stay together as a group. If we separate, we will regroup at each turn in the route.
As noted - self supported ride, so bring a light snack, some water and bring a friend!!
Please RSVP here or on Facebook or on both!
