Okay so it's raining. Let's just call it a rest day today. Have fun kids!
Sorry folks - we've decided to cancel tonight's ride with the heavy showers during the day and the possibility of more showers this evening. We still encourage you to get out for a spin if you're feeling up to it, but stay off the trails where they are muddy. Have a great long weekend!
Instead of hitting the trails for this week's Thursday ride, we are going to give back a bit, roll up our sleeves, and spend the evening doing some trail maintenance. Under the guiding hands of Brad and Dan, we will be working on some of Masters Degree and trimming back some of the recent green growth on the trails below the shop/university area. We will meet at the regular time and place (6:30pm at Rosso) and walk over to the trails - if you have any trail maintenance tools/gear (shovels, rakes, hedge trimmers, etc.) bring them along, but if not, we will have some extra tools on hand to keep everyone busy. Don't forget your mosquito repellent and sturdy footwear, as well as anything else you might need to make your evening an enjoyable one. Hope to see you all this evening!
Well, we had a really good run with the group rides, but mother nature has decided to bless us with more rain. The trail conditions were perfect for the races this weekend, but it rained really hard Sunday night and it's supposed rain most of the day and evening. Sorry to say, but we have to once again cancel Monday night's group ride. The good news is that the weather looks really good for Thursday night.
So since the Fattire Tuesday race is cancelled, we are going for a chill cross ride tonight at 6:30 leaving from Rosso as usual.
Okay, so it looks like it may not rain till later on in the evening. Kurt is keen to go for a ride this evening rain or shine so the ride is back on for tonight. Woohoo!
Well, it's cold and there's wolves after me! Actually, there was some mild rain throughout the day today, and with the cold temperatures, we decided to cancel tonight's trail ride. I know what everyone is thinking: The trails are like totally ridable so lets head out and rip it up, but I think we should be responsible and let the trails fully recover from the super dry conditions and the recent rain. The good news is that we are rescheduling the ride to this Thursday. We are going to break into appropriate groups for this Thursday so everyone can come out.
Well, with the rivervalley fires, snow and wet trails, we are postponing our Sunday mountain ride. Sorry for the late notice everyone, but have a rest day or go for a cross ride if you are up for it.
Mondays, Mondays, Mondays! The sun is shining, and yes, the air is still chilly as it's April, but the trails are mint and ready to ride. If you didn't get a chance to get your club membership, don't worry about it as of yet since you get a freebie ride. So, we will be meeting at Rosso at 6:15pm and leaving at 6:30.
The time has finally come! We are starting our group rides tomorrow evening (Thursday) leaving from Rosso at 6:30pm. This will be the standard Thursday night vibe, so the pace will fairly fast without a lot of stopping as we check out the drier singletrack in the valley. For the more laid back crowd, our Monday 6:30pm rides start next week, so we look forward to seeing our loveable Monday crowd then. Please remember to stop by the shop and renew your club membership in the coming days so you can keep getting your sweet shop discount and so we are covered by the ABA insurance while we are out on the trails. Also remember to inflate your tires, lube your chain, and test your brakes and shifting if you haven't touched your bike since the fall to make for a more enjoyable group ride experience for everyone. See you soon!
