We are planning a weekend getaway social ride to Chattanooga in November (the weekend of the 14th). Mark your calendars now! We will meet on Friday and Saturday nights for socializing/food at a local establishment, then we will break up in groups based on ability on Sat and Sun to ride trails in the Chattanooga area. Join the event on the Sorba Woodstock Social Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get information. If you can only come during the day Saturday, that is great. Some people might be camping, others will be staying at hotels. Join us for this fun event. All ability levels welcome!
