I will be leading the ride from the castle this Tuesday, 02 April. Hope to see some of you there now that we have daylight!

I will try to keep the forum calendar module up to date, but have to do it manually, since there is no recurring event function...

I am going to try and make this one, but I may be a few minutes late. Are you planning on doing the kindsbach loop this week?

Maybe we can do kindsbach on the return leg. I'm sucking wind from the long, food-laden stateside leave that I am still jet lagged from. I think the kindsbach side should be incorporated into the Tuesday ride regularly, though. See you guys there.

Definately not a full-faced helmet rkind of trail...unless you're accident prone. I guess you can never be too safe.

Saturday is going to be a blast!

Thanks for the good turnout (seven!). Fun ride and nice weather if you don't count the downpour/hail at the end.

I'm going to try, but it's not looking like I'll make it out of work with enough time.
