JOIN US FOR THE MID-ATLANTIC'S SEASON-END MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE & FESTIVAL! The 2013 installment of the Trail Spinners Jamboree is just around the corner, and here is what you need to know…
**IMPORTANT RIDE INFO…
This year's ride experience will be a little different than in previous years. First, there will be no guided group rides. Instead the rides will be self-lead on pre-marked routes and riders will be provided with pocket-sized maps of the course so riders can easily find their way. Second, we are taking a step in the 'epic' ride direction by featuring three different course/distance options of (approximately) 10, 20 and 30 miles.
WE WILL MEET UP AS A GROUP, ENDEAVOR TO STAY TOGETHER DEPENDING ON RIDER'S PREFERRED DISTANCE AND PACE. A RELEASE WAIVER IS REQUIRED AS PART OF THE JAMBOREE'S ACTIVITIES AND CAN BE FILED @ MORNING REGISTRATION. ALSO, BAKE GOODS & COFFEE ARE FREE BUT NOT BEER & FOOD.
