Reminder - Come prepared

Thanks Dennis for organizing the event again this year.  

As in past years, our three days of riding is a serious butt kicker.  

If you are planning to join us, please take all the warnings seriously so that you come prepared to have a great time.

If you want to join us, make sure that you come prepared (did I already say that?).  Even though we are getting shuttled, leave your downhill bike at home. Bring your XC or all mountain bike instead.  These rides are what we call long "cross country" shuttles where we connect several trails together to rack up as many miles as possible. This means a lot of climbing.  

Come prepared by committing to your personal training program now.  This is three days of Advanced riding and the core group who ride at a fast pace.  Not racer pace, but close at times.

I hope that you can join us.  Sign up soon as there are only a couple spots left.
