Lisa Randall needs volunteers for the upcoming Rope Mill Dirty Duathlon on October 25th. Thanks to our title sponsor, OutSpokin' Bicycles and our other event sponsors, this event generates $3500 for SORBA Woodstock's trail fund. We need at a minimum 10 volunteers - please help if you can - that's $350 per volunteer going towards your trails! Time frame is from 6:30 am until around noon. Please email Lisa directly to sign up an let her know your shirt size. Thank you!
The next Excuse To Get Together and Ride Party will be on Saturday, November 8th at 10am. Meet in the Blankets Creek clubhouse parking lot. This is a purely social ride. There will be different groups based on ability. No one is left behind, there is no pressure, and our goal is to have fun and socialize.
After the ride, SORBA Woodstock will provide hot dogs and chips. Bring a side for yourself and your favorite beverage. This is a great opportunity to get to know other mountain bikers and find new riding partners!
SORBA Woodstock chapter meeting is next Monday the 13th at 7:00pm. We meet at the Blankets Creek Mountain Bike Trails clubhouse.
Angel Rivera from Sixes Pit Bicycle Shop will be providing food, music, and a drawing for prizes. He will set up at 6:00pm. The drawing is to help pay the medical expenses for Jasmyne Burcher, a young woman diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma at the age of 18. The raffle tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Sixes Pit Bicycle Shop or the night of the meeting (cash only!) up to thirty minutes before the drawing. The drawing for the prizes will be held right after the meeting so hang around.

Come out to help a good cause, find out what is happening with SORBA Woodstock and socialize afterwards!
Conveniently located in Downtown Woodstock, OutSpokin' Bicycles offers bikes and cycling gear for the entire family. Kevin and his crew ride what they sell and know what gear works best on our local trails as well as in the North Georgia Mountains. They are long time supporters of SORBA-Woodstock and Blankets Creek and their employees are active in the cycling community. Please stop in and thank them for supporting trailbuilding so that we all have more places to play!
This exciting race will be bike-run-bike format and feature a 6 mile bike, 3 mile trail run, and 6 mile bike. Solo and team divisions are available. We have also created a special three person "first timer" division to allow beginners a chance to try a duathlon in a team format.
ATTENTION RUNNERS! - A 5k Trail Run as been added to this event!!
For those that would like to participate but do not ride a mountain bike, we have added a 5k (well, technically 3.3 mile) trail run with a separate start from the duathlon. This is a great run for beginners, cross-country kids, and runners who want a short, fast workout.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will benefit SORBA Woodstock for the continued maintenance of the Blankets Creek and Rope Mill Park Trails. The race is a joint effort between Mountain Goat Adventures LLC and SORBA Woodstock.
