Alternate Rain Date

It hasn’t rained on our party yet. But the weather has been kind of unpredictable this year. So not wanting to take any chances, we have an alternate “rain date” of Saturday May 4, 2019 – to be used ONLY if the park trails are closed on our scheduled date. We’ll keep you posted as the date gets near.

Post-Ride Party

After the ride join us for our famous post-ride PARTY. We’ll have a HUGE raffle with tons of cool prizes donated by our generous sponsors. Plus, we’ll have massage therapists, games, bike shop expo, cold drinks and hot music. Bring your friends and family to share in the fun!
