Anyone With Kids want to ride WTA on Saturday Morning?
« on: January 10, 2008, 09:00:59 PM »
Me and my 6 year old son Spencer missed the youth ride last week due to him being sick. We have a Tiger Cubs event on Saturday at the Gulf ridge council off of fletcher & I275 at 1pm, so we were going to hit WTA at about 9:00 or 9:30 am to ride trails for a couple hours before we go. If there is anyone with kids who want to ride with us, let me know! Or if you dont have kids and want to ride with us, that's OK too!

We will park at Trout Creek so we can change and wash up after. We can hit any trail you want except Heartbreak ridge and techno pig. Spencer is a very good rider for his age and he is very brave.

My family will be there Darrin. I'm doing the 50 mile thing along with my 11,13, and 14 year olds. Pretty sure that they'll all make the whole 50, 13 yr. old maybe, but my wife and Brandy (8) might want to ride with you.

what time are you getting there Ken? 50 miles is to much for both of us, but we can keep the rest of your family company while you guys do it.

The ride starts at 9:00 but we'll probably be there around 8ish. We're going to park at Trout Creek also, but I'll be by the boat ramp as i'll have the bike trailer with me. My wife (Miriam) and Brandy will be around the bathroom area or shelter close by. Both will be on Specialized bikes, yellow Rockhopper and black Hotrock. I know all the kids will make the first lap but we'll see about the second lap after they finish the first Grayden, the 11 yr. old, is really adament about making the whole 50. If he keeps that determination up he will.

Ken, Gregg, Richie,

I will be there around 9am at Trout creek parking over by the bike wash area. I'll be riding the green moster shown below and spencer has a green FSR Magna (I know, I know, The Specialized will be his next bike). We will be driving in a blue Toyota Highlander so stop by and say hi Gregg!

Richie, Trout Creek is easy to get to. if you get off I-75 at the Fletcher Exit, Turn east (i think it's a left turn from north or south) about 1 block on the left is Trout Creek park. You can call me on my cell if you get lost 813-300-6840.

I look forward to seeing you all in the morning!

Good to meet you yesterday Richie! :)  That was me parked next to you in the Gray pick-up and trailer with 4 kids and wife, not 40 like Gregg says! ;) Looking forward to some more rides with our kids.

It was nice meeting you too.My daughter had a good time with yours.She asked me if you all went riding regularly.She forgot her name though.I plan on bringing them to the alifia fat tire festival this year.Hopefully she will be serious about riding by then.
