12th Manhattan fun ride August 29th (social distancing rules ;-) )

Post by gagnaou »

Here is the date for the fun ride in Manhattan this Fall. Because of Covid and that we do not want to be one of those super spreader event, we will try to be respective of the 6ft spacing when we are not riding. Ride will be from 1pm until 6pm if the little ones can last that long, we will have drinks in the shop but we will try to limit how many people are in there at once. I just mowed the trails so look for some pretty important changes this year as I redrew numerous of them.

Please post if you are planning on attending.

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.

Unfortunately my calendar says that Saturday is time for me to change my furnace filter, so looks like I'm out.

:-D

I actually do have a real conflict that Saturday, but am trying to figure out if I can weasel out of it so I can come ride!

As always, Luc, thanks for opening up your home and land and for your generosity! It's always a great time, and a unique opportunity to get the kids out to ride, too.

I'll make sure to let you know if I'm coming and how many. Thanks!

Just as an FYI it has been raining since 5, it should be done before we ride but thought I would mention it especially for the ones who have a long drive and would rather not get muddy. For the other ones, we are still planning on having it but it will be muddy and slippery :D :D

We're going to cancel as we have a sick dog ... I don't want to come home to that cleanup (like I did yesterday). :-(
I was hoping she'd be better this morning, but that didn't happen.
The mud factor did help a bit with the decision. Lindsay's first off-road ride evre (at your place) was a wetfest / mudfest. :lol:
