Thursday Happy Hour Ride!!

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

    For being a first timer in the area this was a perfect introduction to a trail and a great opportunity to meet some awesome people.

    Lots of fun! Good group of folks. Hope this morphs into a standing, weekly ride!

    I am so glad I joined this Meetup Group! I push myself harder when I ride with you guys and my skills are improving in just 2 rides. The tailgate happy hour is awesome too-what a cool bunch of riders. Thanks to the organizers, the ride group leaders and sweepers, and everyone else that has made me feel welcome to this very active Mountain Biking Group.

    Got told of this group by Tom? (I think that was it) out at Fountainhead. Planning on making it out today.

    We need cornhole boards. Anyone have a set to bring?

    Wow!! It looks like we are going to have a great turn out again!! I'm going to break us up into 4 groups as follows: Beginner, Casual, Moderate and Fast-(ish). Thanks to all who stepped up and agreed to lead a group! If you are out and loose your group chances are you will be able to jump into a different group. As always, remember to look out for each other and make it back safely for beer and post ride shenanigans. Looking forward to seeing everyone and having a great ride!!

    No fatbike for me this week. I will be riding my new single speed. Skinny tires and no gears...oh my!

    July 30, 2014

    • RJ P.

      With the skinny tires or lack of gears?

      July 30, 2014

    • Mark
