March 26 Ride Report
At the opening ride of 2006 for the Wade Simmons Sprockids Shoreriders, top pros Wade Simmons, Jay Hoots, and Geoff Gulevich led the group through Blaire Range, up the Old Buck Trail and down a classic north shore descent. It was an epic climb but it was worth the effort, as all the young riders were rewarded with a friendly, fast and flowy decent with riding tips from the pros. There’s nothing like watching Wade, Jay and Gully ride to help you up your game!
The ride ended with smiles and hot chocolate all around thanks to Bean Around the World.
The next ride leaves from the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve April 23, meet at 10am, depart at 10:30am. Shoreriders are looking forward to seeing the everyone again, as well as to greeting lots of newcomers.Read more Archived General DB Blogs »
