Seems that now that we are scheduling the rides further in advance we are gaining traction on the Thursday night rides. Thanks to Mike G. for pushing us to be more proactive on the scheduling.
Anyway, great ride last night. We did a combo partial quarry ride then over to the hospital trails for the usual technical fun. All told we had 8 show up (some a little later than others) and 4 were newcomers. Hugh amazed us all with his fearless downhilling and techy skill set and even demonstrated for everyone how one should Not go over a log pile. Jim managed to not run into me despite his best efforts and has now officially graduated from 'Shy Dove' riding style to the elite 'Somewhat Concerned Crow' style. He has come a long way since his introduction to the sport just 2 years ago, and if he ever decides to go singlespeed everyone better watch out. We also had our youngest rider of the year who is reportedly 15 years old.
We had so much fun that when we got back to the parking area a few hours later we found a 3 additional latecomers and took them on a last loop up to the top of Winant and back down again. Hope to see everyone next week up in Laconia.
