Finally, school is at a brief break and the week is at a close. Stress at the holidays is compounded for teachers as they must juggle to keep students engaged and ultimately entertained for the week that runs up to Christmas break. It ain't easy as you know (and have had yourself) to control those daydreams of flung open doors and young bodies hutling out into the light of freedom that lies just outside the school. And who blames them? I, too, am ready for that brief respite that comes with the holidays. A chance to relax and recharge. And a chance to ride, run, eat and be merry.
There are several holiday rides in the works and I will announce all the information that I get. There will be a dirt road ride on Sunday (time TBA) and a dirt road ride on Christmas Eve Day (time TBA). Both will be casual affairs. We will also embark on some dirtier excursions as we will be looking to hit the trails at Dark Mtn. for the next several weeks. Most importantly, there will be a trail building day tomorrow at the new Warrior Creek trail near the Dark Mtn. trail system. The announcement is as follows:
HO, HO, HO!
No, that's not what you will find at trail day but come on out

at Warrior Creek to bring us the sweetest single track yet. Here's

And remember, trail work is fun.
I hope to see you there.
If you can make it, this is a great opportunity to help build one of the best trail networks around! If you can't make it this time, there will be other days in the future, so stay tuned for more information.
Lastly, Tuesday the 23rd will be our informal Holiday get together at the shop. Come by anytime after 4 to share in good cheer(s) and healthy libations!
