Another week of beautiful weather is on tap. Let's get out and enjoy! As always, there is an after party in the parking lot. Mark has volunteered his grill master services so don't forget your grillables! 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. http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/cct/downloads/lakeffxtrailmap.pdf
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
