In case you missed our previous post, there is a group ride going down this Saturday, Jan 14th at the infamous Berryman Trail. When I wrote that post, all I wanted to do was get a few people together to ride, but it looks like this will be more than that. It looks like there will be a very good turnout with lots of our friends as well as some soon-to-be-friends that we have yet to meet. Are you going to be there?
I’ll be staying at my sweet, saintly Grandma’s house in Cuba on Friday night with a couple of my friends, but I know some people would probably like to carpool on Saturday morning. Leave a comment if you want to hitch a ride from Jeff City, and I’ll hook you up with a friend that’s heading down to Berryman on Saturday.
On Saturday morning, I’ll be getting up really early to register for some guaranteed pain and suffering as well as a chance at redemption at the Dirty Kanza 200 (where things did not go very smoothly for me last year). After some breakfast, we’ll voyage through the booming metropolis of Steelville to meet up at the Berryman Campground around 7:30.
I’d like to be clipped in and rolling on some sweet single track by 8:00 AM (8:30 at the very latest). If you need more info on the trail, you can go right here, and if you need a map (courtesy of GORC), take a look below:
All riders of all skill levels are welcome. I’ll be really slow since I’ve put on my “winter coat” over the last month or two, so don’t worry about slowing anyone down. It’s all about the fun and experience for me. There will also be some pretty fast riders having some fun on Saturday, so if you want to rip it, you can do that too. Mother Nature looks like she’ll even cooperate with us: Sunny with a high of 45 degrees. So basically, you have no excuse for missing this ride… Except for kidney stones, your nephews’ birthday party, or a Quantum Leap Marathon on TV. Any other excuse will not be accepted.
So just come on out and enjoy a great day of riding together. Drop us a line in the comments section below or on our facebook page if you want us to wait for you at the trailhead. Or just show up and ride with us. Seriously, we really hope to see you there!
