    Not only a good hike, but also with entertainment thanks to a bunch of gonzo mt. bikers who were plummeting down the trail as we trudged upward!

    Thanks to Lorraine, Shannon and Chuck for coming out. This was a fast hike; the weather was great - with a breeze and good cloud cover that kept the temps down. For added excitement there was a Mountain Bike race up Pet-e-Kes and down Eagle's Tail that kept everyone on their toes.

    Lorraine - feel free to come late or early and hike as much or as little as you want. This is a self-paced conditioning hike and a chance to stretch your legs a little during the week. I'll be at the Lunch Loops Parking Lot at 6:30 and will leave within 10 minutes. No need to call unless you need directions and you can reach me at[masked]-1144. This goes for all - even if you suddenly have some free time but don't get the chance to RSVP just show up and get some hiking in !

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
