The Shedheads Return

Wah-hoooooo! it's back to the shed with the Shedheads. This will be a begin-termediate pedal-fest, cris-crossing the Watershed. This isn't a technical ride though you can expect 90 min of winding "up and downs" with plenty'o'mud and a heavy emphasis on the social aspect (I get lost in the shed from time to time, so we spend a bit of gab time figuring which way trail to take next)

Traditionally, if we manage to stay reasonably dry, we'll grab a beer at the local pub.

This ride will start in daylight, but it gets dark fast in the shed. Lights with a minimum 90 min burn time @ 500 lumens  are mandatory.

Weather disclaimer; if it's a monsoon, I'm not going! Check the website before you leave. I'll notify everyone by 3:00 if the ride is cancelled. if you can't make it, please text me @[masked]
