November Member Meeting/Night Ride

tagged as Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail,Community,Group Ride,Trails,Uncategorized

It’s always amusing when someone asks, “what do you do in your off season?”. For many of us, the tires get fatter, we add a few more layers and we strap on lights!

Join us this Thursday evening at Cannonsburg ski area where we will be focusing on “the off-season” riding and fitness options. Heidi LaPlante from Cycling XT (soon to be The Shift) will be discussing in-door training, Jill Martindale will say a few words about her experience at the Nite National race and we’ll hear some highlights from, world class mountain biker, Danielle Musto and her race in Scotland! We tell you what’s new with the WMMBA as well.

Cannonburg will be opening their doors and will have food and beverages available.

Also, bring your bike and your lights and come early as we will be hitting the trails for a pre-meeting ride at 5:45. If you’ve never ridden the trails at night, we will make sure we won’t loose you.

Ride time 5:45 (ish)
Meet and mingle 7PM
Meeting time 7:30PM

Hope to see you there!
