Saturday Group Ride/EATC Trail Event

Saturday Group Ride: Just want to let everyone know that we'll be doing a group ride in the Buena Vista Saturday morning, July 8th. Meet at the Buena Vista trailhead at 7:00 a.m.. We'll be riding about 12-15 miles. Intermediate level MTB skills are recommended. Even if we start early it is still hot out there this summer so start packing some extra fluids!


Thanks to everyone that came out over the 4th of July weekend for the Buena ride last Saturday and the Land of the Pioneers ride on the 4th. Great showings of people for both events. This rides are a lot more fun with all of your friends (old and new) along! We had five new people receive their first-timer at Hole-In-The-Rock on Saturday, which is a new record!
