There is not a chapter meeting tonight. Stay tuned for the new quarterly chapter meeting dates.
It's that time of year again as freeze/thaw conditions settle in this week with daytime temperatures hovering around freezing. It's a tricky thing to predict and we tend to err on the side of protecting the trails. Here's a decent article explaining the freeze/thaw issue.
"You're riding along on your favorite trail on a nice winter morning. It's frozen solid and you're having a great ride. After awhile, the sun comes out and a few minutes later the beautiful hardpacked trail has turned to mush, and you and your bike are coated with mud. In this article, originally intended for the GORC newsletter, Sam Mitchell explains how this happens."

It's the holidays and SORBA Woodstock is going to take a break from trail work in December. No work party this weekend.
Thanks again to all of our great volunteers who put in many, many hours of trail work, Mountain Goat Adventures, Free-Flite Bicycles, Outspokin' Bicycles and Sixes Pit Bicycle Shop who contributed to our great trails this year.
You have plenty to look forward to in 2015 and we'll see you then.
In the meantime, get out and ride!
