Boyette Saturday?
« on: May 01, 2008, 07:48:21 AM »
Looking to get together a group for a ride at Boyette Saturday at 8:30 am.  All welcome.....Im a solid C rider.  Would be nice to have a Swamp guide come out and help us beginners with techniques if we get enough Riders.  Darrin if your still alive.....how about it?

I'll meet up! I'm not sure what level rider I am but I road w. the last group on Tuesday and I stuck fairly well with them. I've only been out to Boyette a few times so I don't really know the trails too well.

I drive a white Honda Accord and ride a powder blue Gary Fisher.

PM me for my # if you get signal out there. I'm also curious to see where I stand.

Hope to ride with you guys!

I am still alive ;D, I can go a little later on Saturday like around 9:30 or so. My wife has to get our veggies from the co-op that morning and I have baby sitting duty. Went to Croom last saturday and helped with the yellow trails and rode.

Lets do 9:15 if thats okay with everyone.  We can do the same thing as last time Darrin as far as trails go.  I like to go early so Im leaving when it starts to get hot, and not to mention when the 2 way traffic picks up.  As far as everyone knowing where they stand....Darrin has everyone beat in the bleeding an scrapes category and I am the best for following over for no apparent reason.  Ill be in my 20 ft white Chevy truck.  Would like to get a larger group this time.  I think  last time it was all about having fun.  breaks whenever....trails...dont care.  really laid back.   Was one of the best times Ive had riding.

Ohhh....you always gotta stay clipped in.  Its great motivation.  Sometimes you might get fainting goat syndrome, but what is the worst that can happen.  I mean if you fall atleast you know your bike will come with you, and you can keep it from getting scratched. Also when you go into a pond its easier to find your bike.

Darrin how was Croom?  Last time I was there was I think in 98.  It was alot of sand and unmarked trails with enduro tracks everywhere.

I think you've actually scared me off more than convinced but I'll give it a shot anyway  ;)

We only rode the yellow trails and they were OK. There was some sand, but about as much as WTA. They have some fun whoops and some good climbs. It was actually a good in-between Boyette and WTA trail. My son loved it except the last climb out of Turner Hill.

I'll be out there riding solo tomorrow morning around 8.  Say 'hi' if you see me out on the trail...I may join in with the group if we run into each other.  I'm a tall guy on a blue & silver Giant Anthem.
