We Optn’ Outside @ George Poston Park MTB Trails
Nov 24 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

 

So, we’re crafting a “No drop, calorie burnin’, smile makin’ & memory takin’ Opt Outside adventure! Stay tuned for specific details. It will include some single track riding outside the norm…#OptOutside Then all welcome to join for post ride re-carbing nearby Belmont…While this great park has much to do, our focus for the day will be a group led mountain bike ride for those capable of putting in a few miles, can handle minor roots, hills & the sort. 

There is also a short 1 mile & “GREEN” course for the weeee ones, which we encourage to try out. Heck, we can all ride it as a warm up, say few words & break off into various groups depending on the level of riders present. Post ride, we’re planning on hitting up a local spot in downtown Belmont for those interested in refueling as a crew.

Bring your bike, helmet, gloves, hydration & any snacks you might need. Wheel’s rolling shortly by 10AM sharp. Got Bikin’ Dads gear? Be sure to rock it, or we should have some available for suggested donation if so able. T’s & few jerseys remain!
