Here is the date for the fun ride in Manhattan this Fall. Sorry I did not post anything sooner, but it slipped my mind and after being asked a few times this weekend, finally took the time to figure out a date that would work. Hopefully it is not too cold, but even it is we should not have any problem warming up on those trails and I will heat up the shop to warm up in between.

Please post if you are planning on attending as we will have some food for all to eat so that we have more time to play.

This ride is for everybody but especially for the younger kids that want to have a safe environment to learn. There is different level of difficulties on the trails so everybody should find something at his/her level.

weather.com showing 0% on friday but 80% later in the day/evening so that means we should have plenty of time before it pours :-)

Awesome! But what about the little guy? Should be tall enough to flat foot that KTM ;-)

I have encouraged people to come on the early side because of the chances of rain later in the day. Though I am guessing the people who have to travel may not be here much before 10. I am planning on being ready by 9:00.

As far as I know all the people who said they were coming are still coming, but it may change...

See you tomorrow!

I took a few photos ... and several are blurry as I didn't have my settings correct.

Thanks for hosting a fun day for all. Thankfully the weather held and was nice for a day of riding. I especially enjoyed your woods /creek part of the trails. I drove through very heavy rain twice on the way home.( Same storm I stopped for a bit in Emporia and it caught up with me.) It finally arrived at my house around 9pm and I received 2.4 inches.

Thanks for the video Q! Nice work. Hope Gavin's arm/wrist is back to normal (or soon).
Enjoyed seeing the jump from your perspective, as well as mine. :)
