    Couldn't have asked for better conditions or a more enthusiastic group to ride with. I'm hoping to learn the trails and have enough stamina to be a supportive member of the no drop Torc ride. Everyone is great! Glad I finally joined you all for dinner, top notch company !

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
