    EVENTS COMING UP

    Nov 9 – Trail work at Freedom Park starting at 9 am.  It’s going to be chilly so dress for the weather.  There are a couple of projects that need to be completed here so many people are needed.  If you can spare even an hour or two, please come out and help!

    Night rides Night rides are happening at Harwood’s Mill on Tuesdays and Freedom on Thursdays.  We are still working on permission for rides at New Quarter on Wednesdays and Lake Maury on Thursdays.  Rides begin at 6 pm and we have to be out of the parks by 8 pm.  Every rider should have 2 lights, and no one should be riding alone.  Rides will be canceled if there are not at least 2 riders.  Thank you to everyone who stepped up to be ride leaders.

    OTHER NOTES

    Trail work – Cooler weather means it’s trail work season.  There is a lot of work to do throughout all of our parks.  We plan to schedule trail work on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays throughout the next few months.  Please mark your calendar and plan to help out.  We will continue to have group rides on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, and hopefully get some Sunday rides scheduled as well.
