The July ride was successful especially as more than half of the group had never ridden those trails before! Speaking for myself the weather was perfect and the company was excellent. The discussions ranged from is it better to have one bike or many, new handlebars, custom bikes and all sorts of things that those of us who are self proclaimed gear heads just love. One of the greatest things about group riding is the fact that you get to learn so much about trails, people, bikes the whole lot of it.
Venturing off to a new trail system is always exciting but the excitment usually includes getting lost, possbily ending up in a subdivision or trying to convince a possibly reluctant local to show you around. Not so on the last ride. I not only got some good trail education but what direction is best to run the trails depending on how you feel and even the safe outs. I figure if one area can satsify an 8 yr old and advanced riders we pretty much hit the jack pot.
Lunch was also a bit of an adventure this time around- goodness! Burgers for everyone! Gail and I have some plans for the next ride so I want everyone to come back and see our new and improved offering. More salads and goodies! Please let us know if you have any suggestions, love to hear the feedback!
Get out and ride! See you on Aug 20th!!
