ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS - Introduction to Trail Riding (Helpers Wanted)

    Have you been longing to try mountain biking but don't know how to get started?

    Have you ridden on paved trails or the street but never on dirt?

    Are you a TRUE beginner with no real skills to speak of and want a place to start?

    Want a friendly and patient environment with like-minded beginners?

    These are some of the reasons I've decided to post this ride.  If you're a total newbie, this is the place for you to start.  Mountain biking isn't the safest pastime in the world, but this ride will be about as safe as it gets, and in a low-stress environment.  I've reserved this ride for newbies, so you can feel free to ask any questions you want without being embarrassed.  We'll work on a few basic skills, hopefully with the end result of riding some real trails in a controlled and safe manner.  This will help prepare you for some of the other, more demanding beginner rides that are posted regularly.

    We're only meeting at the skills park.  We are NOT riding it...we're gonna ride around it. ^_^

    I'll add more details as I come up with them!

    Hi folks. Bad news...maybe. I need to change the time of this by 6 hours...I now have a church gig in the morning. For some, that'll make the schedule easier...for others, worse. Apologies! It was a bit of a surprise to me, too. The good news? Great weather and not too hot! I'm going to cancel this one and repost at the new time so it's announced to everyone to give people a chance to re-evaluate whether or not they want to reschedule. Thanks for your patience, and sorry if it ends up inconvenient!

    I'll be spending all morning with the group! Seems like a nice jumpstart into my riding!
