    Recap, COMBA Beginner Ride #2

    <p>The beginner ride this month was at&nbsp;<a style="color: #0062a0; text-decoration: underline;" href="http://www.lakewood.org/bclp/" target="_blank">Bear Creek Lake Park</a>. The evening provided 70 degree overcast weather, which is perfect for mountain biking</span><span style="color: #666666; font-family: Arial; line-height: 20px; font-size: small;">.</p>

    <p>The ride started off with support from <a href="http://goldenbikeshop.com/" target="_blank">Golden Bike Shop</a>, and&nbsp;then afterwards they provided post-ride beverages and snacks (<em>thank-you!!</em>)</p>
    <p>&nbsp;</p>

    <p>A few adjustments and we were off!</p>

    <p>What is missing here? Surprisingly it still shifted!</p>

    <p>Some experienced riders showed up to help out, which was fantastic (thank-you!!) and very much appreciated.</p>

    <p>Our group rides offer a lot of encouragement with a no-drop policy! We all start together and we finished together.</p>
