It is hard to schedule a ride that will work for everybody's schedule. I checked with a few of you and obviously never got the same answer so I decided that we were going to do it April 26th.

Here is the thread with pictures and videos that we had last year. http://www.rideforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2021

I think it is a good venue for little guys, it has a nice easy loop for Kids to perfect their skills and a more challenging loop for adults to practice their skills as well.

Let's shoot for 10 am, but no problem if you come later. I will have some sub sandwiches made for lunch, snacks and drinks so that you do not have to worry about bringing food and we have more time to play.

If you are planning on coming, please post on this thread so that I can plan accordingly.

From Spring Break thanks Savage.

As far as I know we should be able to make it. Thanks for setting this up!

I definitely want to come, but we'll see how my schedule goes. It's that time of the year where literally every weekend there are great riding opportunities. Right now, every weekend of the next 6 except Easter has a potential ride op on my calendar. I do have a wife & kid and other responsibilities! :D

THANKS, Luc, for generously opening your property to this. There are so few places for families to ride--especially safe places for the little kids. Very cool.

Thanks Luc. Griffin's looking forward to riding with Leonce. If you're ok with it, we may also bring along another dad/son combo to introduce to the scene. See you next month!

Sounds like a plan!

Jodi, Rachel, and I are IN. (PLEASE don't screw us over, Mother Nature!)

Motomann, you mentioned a small ATV I can borrow? Rachel would definitely LOVE that. She has ridden them before and lit up when I mentioned the possibility. We'll get together regarding logistics--I could borrow bro-in-law's trailer again for your gator.

HEY SAFIRI! You want to get Lars out for this one? I will bring Rachel's Honda CRF 50 (that she can't ride yet) so somebody else can enjoy it that day.

Another friend has a little kid's ATV that I can borrow IF he brings it back from Arkansas between now and then.

I assume this can be a lawn chairs, coolers, cooking burgers & dogs on the grill kind of thing?

Kyle, get your guest room ready for that Sat night. :D

I updated the first post, let me know if anything is inaccurate. I will PM all of the ones who said they were in direction to my place.

It should be fun!

Hi All-
I'm brand new to this space. I have a 9 year old boy who is very interested in learning how to ride properly and we'd love to come for this weekend. He has a tiny little electric bike, but it isn't much. His uncle Eddie, (ajayhawkfan) turned us on to this ride. I'll stress that I am completely ignorant about riding.

Thanks, looking forward to meeting everyone!

Yep, Daria and our kids are in. She'll probably bake cupcakes or something.
I have an extra helmet I can bring if need be.
I asked Chad, so we'll see if it works out.

Looking to share youth gear ... as I think youth motos are going to be the limiting factor.

Anybody have a pair of boots (size 4) Lars could wear?
helmet, size large (20.5" / 52 cm)?

That would be Awesome Eddie! I would be great to finally get to meet you! Plus you may be able to give us some good pointers after your training ride with Bill Conger!
