    Organizer Roy did a great job describing the ride on Meetup, starting location was easy to find, we left on time, pace of ride was good. The group was pleasant and the ride was very nice.

    Hi Roy, hope to join you guys on a ride soon. Think I should get a better bike first...found myself pedaling twice as hard as other people just to keep up on recent rides. Have fun!

    It's my mom's 75th birthday party and I have to be there at 1:30, I don't think I can complete the ride and drive to waterford by that time? It looks like 30 % chance of rain for sat. and sun. as well this might slow the pace down alittle as well.

    Hi Roy, will you guys be riding fast? Roughly how long will it take to ride the 8 miles?

    I've ridden with my road bike that has very skinny tires. This is a very pleasant and mainly flat ride.

    Hey Joe
    The trail is about half and half. It's a pretty hard trail,you should be alright with what you have.

    How would you rate the hard pack and how much of the trail is hardpack, do I need to switch out my hybrid tires for knobbies?
