8 AM Trail Ride – Local Trails

If my wife lets me go outside and play–I will meet anyone else interested at the parking lot for McDonald’s Woods on Grass Lake Road for a ride on the local trails. We can go north to Beck Trails, west to Sun Lake Trails and south to the new trail under Grand Ave and Rollins Road. Lots of places to go and no need to get in your car.

Hope the weather is okay to ride. Dress warm. Text me if you have any questions.

Nothing is planned for Sunday at the moment.

Veloist After Ride Party is Cancelled

Sorry to have to do this boys, but with so few able to make the ride and after ride–it would be better if we plan for a late breakfast stop after the ride for anyone that’s interested. That way if you’re there, good. If not, no worries.
