Hello Mountain Bikers,

Tomorrow (Thursday May 6) is the first Thursday of the month.  So if the weather cooperates, the plan is to make the monthly road trip to ride off-road somewhere away from our local trails.  

The group will be riding off-road in Camrock 3 (a Dane County park located near Rockdale, WI) this Thursday. 

PLEASE NOTE: A Dane County trail pass is required to ride in Camrock.  So if you don’t already have a pass, then please remember to bring money to purchase one.    

If you plan to ride with the group meet the group in the parking lot of Camrock 3 (see map) and be ready to ride by 6:00 pm

The group will most likely be splitting into at least two groups (“Race” and “Casual”).  Riders choosing to ride in the “Race” group should keep in mind that they are responsible for themselves and that the group may not stop to regroup or wait for slower riders.  Riders choosing to ride in the “Casual” group are expected to keep the group intact.  This means riders in the “Casual” group should either occasionally stop and wait for the slowest riders to catch up – OR – be willing to ride the slowest rider’s pace.

The trip will likely be cancelled if it rains after 10:00 am the day of the planned ride. Depending on precipitation amount.

Check to see if the trails are closed here:       https://www.madcitydirt.com/

In addition to remembering trail-pass money, don’t forget to bring some money for post-ride refreshments and also to warn your spouse that it might be a little “later-than-normal” Thursday night.  It is possible to sit outside at the bar in Rockdale, across the river from the trail.

Instead, if you would like you can join the Michael’s Cycles group at Rockport road parking lot at 6:30.

I hope to see you tomorrow!
