ride as you work your way back into shape after a layoff, or as you get started with MTB'ing?
Here ya go.. We'll meet at the Old Reedy Creek Rd. entrance, by the bench, Saturday mornings at 10:30am. We'll ride a big chunk of the LCCP trails, depending on how people feel. No one will be left behind (not for long anyway), we'll stop and rest as often as people need, and generally have a good time, get some exercise, and enjoy ourselves.

Weather permitting, of course.

Call or email Phil at[masked] or [masked] for more details or if you have
trouble finding us. I'll be the guy in a blue Ford Expedition, riding a brown Specialized Hard Rock.

Lake Crabtree County Park is a great location for rides. Expect easy to slightly moderate elevation changes. All trail obstacles have ride a rounds. Pace will be dependent on the experience and skill levels of the attendees, but I'm expecting an average speed of probably 5mph or so.

You MUST wear a helmet while riding on the trails. Make sure you have plenty of water.

    Hey gang, I'm still out of town, and there's no obvious candidate to take over this ride this week, who is definitely attending. If somebody wants to volunteer to lead the ride this week, give me a shout. Otherwise, I'm going to cancel this session.

      Chip - awesome! I'll leave it on the schedule then. Thanks! I'd hate to have to drop these, but my work schedule has me in Chicago for most of the next 2.5 months, so I'm kinda depending on other folks to help out in the meantime. Thanks for stepping up. :-)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
