Ready for Thanksgiving?

November 18, 2011

Ready for Thanksgiving? It’s always a great time of year to get together, enjoy some great food and relax! Of course, some of us believe that relaxing involves getting out and enjoying the great outdoors. Join us this Sunday for an endurance ride on the trails. The ride will depart from the Daniel Wright Woods at 8AM and should average 16.5mph (trail speed) for 3 hours. And, start your Turkey day off right and join us for our Thanksgiving day ride. The 2 hour ride will depart from the Daniel Wright woods at 8AM. We’ll have a post ride gathering in the park, so bring some goodies to share : )
