    Among other things, we'll have a bunch of trail loops marked for you to enjoy a ride without taking out the map, various led rides, a BBQ hosted by BBQ for a Cure, Demo bikes from Rocky Mountain Bikes, and for you women-riders we have Karen Eagan coming down from Highland Mountain Bike Park to lead her "Ride Like A Girl" series, which will start around 10AM.

    Registration is open at 8:30 till Noon. BBQ wraps up when they run out of food (usually around 1:30 or so).
    We'll have raffle tickets on hand to enter to win a Fox Fork of your choice, among a whole bunch of other swag...
