Here is the date for the fun ride in Manhattan this Spring. 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.

If you want to see what it is all about, here are the links to the previous ones:

Awesome time at Luc's. Loved watching all of the kids play off and support each other. Adults, too. Thanks once again, Luc.

Link should take you to all of the photos and videos I took yesterday:

My boy and I had no plans of riding. He didn't get home until 11:15 Thursday night after a track meet, then he didn't feel well Friday, I'm guessing from running and yelling all day and night. At the last minute we decided to just come hang out and chit chat. I ended up riding Luc's trials bike and he ended up riding Robert's 50's and playing with nerf guns with the others.
I asked him last night how his day was and he said AWESOME! :D
Thanks for having us out Luc! Thanks for letting us ride your bikes guys! Thanks for the goggles Joe!
