Where: Smithville Lake - Sailboat Cove
What: June EarthRiders Meeting
Trails are going to be dusty according to the reports from the tree clean up crew last night. The meeting is a GO! We are planning on having burgers and dogs for about 80 people. Beans, chips, potato salad and home made chocolate chip cookies.
Grab your kitchen passes, throw on your bike, and grab six of whatever your favorite beverage is. The trails should be sweet! I have to head up tonight to finish trimming a few furry spots. The downed trees were cleared by Tacoboy and DirtyV last night.
We will be meeting @ Sailboat Cove which is south of the usual W highway trail head. I will have a map posted at the W trail head if you show up there and don't know how to get to the Sailboat Cove Shelter.
I should be setting up at the shelter house around 5 pm. The official ride usually starts at 6 pm MTB time. Come earlier, come later, just come up whatever you do.
See you there

From our SouthEast squad....New Cow Town member Selby Holler has been training hard with Joey Locke in the Florida heat. Both have been putting in the miles in after their last event, the Cohutta 35, to prepare for the very popular Bump N' Grind (572 racers). Their hard work payed off with Selby taking a class win in only his second mountain bike race and Joey stepping up on the box with a 3rd place. Congrats to them both for representing Cow Town well.
The KC squad will be taking on the Bump N' Grind next year. Mark June 7th, 2009 on your calendar
