Thursday Happy Hour Ride!!

Let's see if we can get two weeks in a row of riding. As always, there is an after party in the parking lot. If you have a grill break that bad boy out! Bring beer and food to share while you catch up with old friends and make some new ones.

Everyone is welcome, but here are a few things to keep in mind:

1. This is an unsupported ride, which means that you should have experience on a mountain bike. You should be prepared to fix your bike, find your way back to the parking lot, and ride solo if it comes to that. This ride will not have a dedicated "sweeper." If you're worried about riding alone, think about bringing a friend or posting a note on the site before the ride.

2. If you don't know the trail, you should carry a map or directions.

3. A helmet is required, and we strongly encourage you to bring a cell phone and water.

4. You should have a bike tool, pump and spare tubes — and of course know how to use them

    Weather forecast improves early afternoon. I plan to pre-ride and will post if trail conditions are an issue.

      I live about 3 miles away too and agree with Chris's statement. I have to go run some errands and will stop by the trail and walk part of it to confirm conditions. Will report back in 1-2 hours.

      @1630 the trail is in great condition. Only rough spots are the usual ones on the doubletrack which are easily avoided. I'll admit the menacing cloud that's right above Lake Fairfax is scary but if it holds, we are looking great for 1830 tonight.

    I will bring my grill. Get some beer and food on folks!

    Do you guys ever ride on nights other than Thursday? Or weekends? I have a standing Thursday commitment and I seem to be missing all the fun.

      Gonna have to get rid of that , tell then it's beers and bikes they'll understand. :)

      Sometimes Pete. Thursdays work best for me so that is why I organize for that day. Other organizers may choose different days based on the weather that week and their availability. Hope you can make it out to one of our rides.

    I'll be looking to ride with a slower group if there's one planning to ride on Thursday. I haven't been riding all that often so I'm a little rusty.

    3 · July 21, 2014

    • Casey

      I have a tendency to bring up the rear (I am super slow!), so come on out!

      2 · July 22, 2014

    • ML

      I won't be breaking any records. Come out and play Shannon.

      1 · July 22, 2014

  • Chris

    Here's hoping the weather holds... Mud is fun but I don't want to destroy the trails!
