W: Rides of March Update

March 4 2012

The Rides of March 30/50 will be held on March 17th at Red Rock, Nevada. The ride is filling fast so if you have not sent in your entry do it quick. If we have to start a wait list you will be notified by phone and email.  This ride is also sanctioned by AHA. 

Save $10.00 if you register by March 5!

Due to the lack of snow on the ground we will be using the beautiful Scenic Trail again this year.  While the wild flowers seem to be staying in hiding the grasses are starting to turn green.  The hawks and the deer have been fairly prevalent as well over the last few weeks.  It should prove to be another wonderful ride to celebrate our 10th year.

Come join us!
