|Things to keep in mind as you plan to attend our Club Activities:
Please RSVP for all activities so we can plan well and let you know of any last minute changes that may become necessary.
POSTED TIMES mean you are there, tacked, and in the saddle Ready To Ride (RTR) at the times posted!
Call if you will not make it so we do not wait and wait for you.
Unless otherwise noted, all club rides will be geared for all riders present to enjoy themselves…We may spread ourselves out allowing the faster and stronger riders to move on ahead, split into more than one group, ride on your own, or whatever else it takes to ensure everyone has the best time possible.
If you want help at a ride be sure to call trail host so we can pair you with an experienced member.
Always carry a copy of your coggins, water, and clean up tools – and leave the area cleaner than we found it.
***Club Events & Membership is Required –new memberships are accepted at events so you are welcome to bring friends – just give their membership form and payment to the ride host before unloading –better yet, mail at least a week ahead.
