18:00 Thursday NO DROP MTB group ride Gelterswoog

Post by thedude76 on Sat Jun 11, 2011 7:09 pm

The Thursday group ride is a no drop ride. This means the slowest rider sets the pace and you will not get left behind. This ride takes place every Thursday. Although, once in a while the ride will fall through so check the forum first and post that you plan to be there if you are coming. The purpose of this ride is to get out with the other club members and have a good time, and introduce new members to the trails in the area. The meeting place is the Gelterswoog parking lot. This is the sign as seen from B270.

This ride consist of a mix of singletrack descents and climbs but nothing too technical, and a few fire road climbs are also included. The ride is usually around 25km long with 450 meters of vertical gain. The ride takes around 2 hours give or take depending on the size and riding level of the group.

Some pics of the trails so you know what to expect.

Awesome Ride last night!!! Show up to a KMC Cycling Group Ride and have the opportunity to attend a class on the improper/proper way to change a tube...conducted by Jonesy...and have your chain repaired by him as well. I know the next time I have a problem with my ride I'll be sure to attend a KMC Cycling Group Ride... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Great repair Show Jman! You really need to be the lead man for our Bicycle maintenance day event. Ya so what do ya think K.M.C. Cycling? After riding last night I had an epiphany. Ya you can laugh. That we should do a couple hour bike maintenance day outside the KMC Mall. Do to the abundance of mechanics that are apart of our club. Heck we could even sell hot dogs or something to help raise money for free tubes and stuff. I have been slacking on the volunteer tip and really want to do something for the community and soon. I think now would be the time(summer) to do something soon. I don't want to start something and just talk about it anymore. This would be a great opportunity to advertise who we are. Weigh in? Do you want to help? Is this even possible?

You should start a new thread for this... But I'd be willing to help, and provide tools, wheel truing, and all that jazz. An event like that needs to be advertized ahead of time, too.
