I don't understand why we have to pay 5 dollars, the ride would be so much more successful if it were free! And brakes why do we need brakes, they are WAYYYY! over rated. I might even goes as far as to say only sissies use them. ;D

They do pay us to ride out of volunteer time.  They put all the money up front to purchase the property and pay the staff.  We just put up a minor maintenance fee on occasion.

Meet at the Gate infront of the Park at 6:30pm Sharp. You'll have to
pay $5 dollars unless you've worked at least 2 days on trails this year
at Alifia.
So get out and do some trail maintenance if you want free riding.  You will also have to sign a waiver for liability purposes.
Make sure you have good lights!!!!!
Hope to see you guys there.

Great ride last night! we had a large ginormous turnout..  In our group we had a nice train of about 12 guys.   If you did not show you should try to hit the next! 8)

Great ride last night!...Depending on who you ride with, just about everything gets hit on the night ride, including moonscapes w/doom, franks loop, rabbit ears and about everything in between!

I don't know man, that new rabbit ear would be pretty sick in the dark. Anybody else end up hanging from that little weed of a tree on the second to last hill? It held me and my bike just fine. :-\
