I'll have 7 & 9 in tow. Both have ridden six mile on 20" geared bikes.

Both have strong skills, but 7 is still building confidence on scary looking sections.

Thanks @KenS
I'll bring Will to the 11am NICA ride then.

Ken is right about the confidence when around other kids vs being with just dad. Will did way better on the trail at Jungle last year that I would have expected since he was following other kids, and not me. I just hung in the back.

Right on. Dillon V took my son and about 15 other kids through Jungle when he was 6 or so. He had never really ridden anything as rocky before and he absolutely loved it. Soon after he did all of Wharthog and a few other trails. They are sponges for knowledge and mostly fearless at that age.

I will not make 9:30 ride as I need to do brake job on my van. It would of been done but shity ford uses a 7mm Allen which is not in my collection. Notice 7mm doesn't come in any MM set because it's retarded like Ford. Reminds me of a bike brand that shall not be named.

Good seeing everyone today. Great day, great people. Keep on riding.

Single Speed for Schilling ride, I deferred to Luke, who knows the park better then I. The start was rough, but it's Ringwood...rocks are everywhere. We split up about an hour in, which helped the flow. Here is the group that did the extended tour, which included white (downhill).
