Any C riders going to Boyette Saturday
« on: April 15, 2008, 01:48:17 PM »
Like to see if any slow C Riders are riding Boyette this Saturday.  Last time I rode with the club, but no C Riders showed.  I ended up slowing down the group, and gave the rear guide a long day.  Anyone interested?  I hate going alone because of the lost factor.

Can I show up if I'm not  SWAMP member? I'm not sure of the rules and all. If so, I may be interested and I'm probably a C. First time biking in a long time and new to the area and I was planning to hit Alafia alone this weekend but I'd do Boyette with some company. Let me know. Ciao!

You don't have to be a member of SWAMP to join in on the group rides or workdays.  Anyone can join us for that.  There are certain perks to being a member of SWAMP though.  Discounts at some bike shops, out of state club rides, maps of the trails, socials, etc.

Anyone who is going lets plan on meeting at 8 am.  Kinda also gives a chance to meet to setup informal rides with eachother in the same skill level when we cant make the club rides. Plus I ride Alafia alone all the time and that is just stupid....

A Group - gonzo riders
maintain fast, aggressive pace

carry tools, spare chain tool/parts, know how to use them
B Group - experienced riders
will split into fast (B+), medium (B), and relaxed (B-) paced groups
intermediate level riding skills
reasonable knowledge of trails - group does wait at intersections for everyone to catch up
carry tools, possess minimal mechanical skills, but will receive assistance from group if there is a problem
C Group - recreational off road cycling
moderate pace - shorter route
Minimal riding skills required (new riders)
no knowledge of trails needed
