    The mix of serious riders and casual riders is not ideal. They really need to separate into two events (Time Challenge Ride, Family Ride)

    Did the ride as well and saw the aftermath of the crash you mentioned, when we went through it must have just happened. When we were waiting at the end of the ride they were doing announcements that...

    Ugh I seriously hate snakes. I have a mini heart attack every time I see one slither along the trail in front of me. I'm basically Indiana Jones really.
