I'll try to make as many as possible, we should do a RV ride too! Gives me an excuse to finally go that far north and south to ride.

We can always do RV rides outside of this (I need to tackle those climbs), but FYI, one will be schedule in January. Woo hoo!!

Edit: it's to early for me to say I am definitely in, but I would like to attend.

Oh boo-hoo! I'm not paying attention and it's their fault :cry::cry::cry:

Hello:

I would like to bring my team I am coaching, Cesar, Nelson, Ekrem, and myself. Is that ok? they very good riders, Ekrem is only 9 but can keep up with the other 17 year olds. And if does not work out I know the park like my palm.

Thanks,
EmrahAyhan

Jake - Can you give a rough idea how the ride will go?

we'll all sit on our bikes, rubber side down and pedal. we'll then ride on trails. if something gets in your way, turn. or go over it. :D

i pretty much break the park up into five sections:

lower needle: green on the needle side (left of rail trail), blue on the other (rt of rail trail); swoopy with one small climb.
needle: climb with a steep starting section but otherwise just another climb; fast flowy DH section. i'll probably end up walking it.
switch: accessed from parking lot. starts with, oddly enough, a switchback climb. i think this is the white trail.
fisherman's path: short (maybe a mile) twisty section along the lake. very tight, very fun. optional 3' drop in middle.
"other side": both red and blue trails over here. probably take red to blue and cut back across the park that way. maybe.

i think that's about what we're looking at, likely in that order. i've got just about all of the loop figured out and just need to pull the end piece together. should be about two hours, 13/15 miles depending.
