September Kids Ride

From Chris Latham...


I had scheduled this Sunday for the next kids ride but I am going to take advantage of the three day weekend and move this one to Monday in hopes of getting more participation. We will meet for this ride at the Ponderosa Trails Park Ramada at 9 AM on Monday the 4th. If your bike needs any work please come by 8:30 or so and I will help you with it.

To get to the park take the first possible right off Lake Mary Rd. and then teh first possible left at Wild West. The park is small but on your right about 2 blocks in. We will go from there to Fort Tuthill most of the kids will stay on urban trail and more advanced ones will do the Soldiers Trail loop and then return to the park. Most will be back be 10:30 or some (the advanced group) soon after.

I will have to bring waivers for everybody to sign so as to remove liability from ride leaders and the Red Rock Racing or Flagstaff Biking so please accompany the kids when you arrive. We will talk more when we meet. Thanks for your support and See you Monday!
