Hey folks,

Big news...Ultimate Bicycle in Matthews, NC has graciously agreed to sponsor weekly night rides at Beatty!  These rides will be held every Wednesday night(weather permitting) throughout the year meeting at 7:00pm at the tennis courts. Along with the ride, Ultimate Bicycle has generously offered some items to be raffled away at each ride.  To enter the raffle just show up and ride with us. The rides will begin around 7:15 after the raffle, and continue until. This event is open to anyone and everyone regardless of skill level, experience etc.

So come on out and ride!


Big thanks to all the guys over at Ultimate Bicycle:

Do what you like. Stop hating people for their riding habits and get back to hating them for their skin color, religion, politics, and sexual orientation.

David, I'm with you; 7:15 is late to start with a family to deal with.  I wouldn't start that late even in the summer.  Undecided

we'll have to see.  FINS is showing .06" which is fine but they're calling for more.  I'll make a decision by Lunchtime. Thats when the majority of rain is supposed to come in. If anyone up that way can post rain conditions please let us know. Thanks!

I haven't heard any different.  They just opened up a couple of months ago.

Well folks,

Looks like were going to postpone the night ride tonight(1/16).  The weather just doesnt want to cooperate.  The guys at Ultimate have been good enough to sponsor this and I'd rather wait for a nice evening so we can have a big turnout. Hopefully mother nature plays nice next week and we can have a big group for the 23rd.  Thanks ya'll, and we'll see ya next week.

Thanks for putting this together Banjopickin. The Trailblazers need more social things like these kind of rides, and kudos to you for taking the initiative and cranking something up.

Dont thank me, thank Ultimate for getting on board and supporting the THTBs.  And agreed, the club does need more social events(besides trailwork and monthly meetings).  This is just one of a few things I have in the works for 2013. Hopefully we can get folks out and coming together as a club to have fun and be more social.

Glad to hear about this new ride plan. I too would be interested in a lap earlier in the evening since I work very near Beatty and then a second lap with the official group. I won't be able to make it to the next ride on the 23rd but hopefully can do the one after that.

Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
