Wed Night MTB Social Ride UPDATE & Lead Ride Roster

Hi MTBers

The Wednesday Night MTB Social Ride has a flash new page on the DoC website! Check it out here or when you head to the website you can find it via the menu on the front page by hovering over “MTB”.

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to be a lead rider for the Novice Coached/Social Ride. The roster can be found here or you can find it on the website as a sub menu to Wednesday Night Social Ride (see image below). This is a really important ride – I learnt all my fundamental skills from all the generous lead riders during 2012 – it probably means more to the riders than you think.

Happy riding everyone,
