Memorial Day Ride

Memorial Day Weekend is a great weekend for BBQs, picnics, bike rides and just getting together with friends. We all have the freedom to do this, but let us not forget that this freedom comes with a price… a price that others have paid for in blood.

Please join us for our annual Memorial Day Ride at Blankets Creek remembering those who have served in our armed forces and paid the ultimate price. We will meet at 10 am on Monday, May 30th at the Blankets Creek SORBA clubhouse and ride out to the flag overlook for a short remembrance service honoring those that have given their lives for our country. We must never forget the price of liberty comes at a cost.

Trail Work Party This Saturday!

Join us at Rope Mill this Saturday at 9:00 to give the trails some love. Bring gloves and water. Food provided after the work party.  We have something for everyone who wants to give back to the trails. 
This month's projects include...
* EA & mile markers - Finish installing post and markings
* Install donation board at Knot
* Clip & ride (take a slow ride with clippers to remove the spring growth)
* Clean drains on all three trails

If the weather is bad, we will cancel the day of the event at 8:00 am by posting on our SORBA Woodstock Social Facebook page and on the website. If you do not see a cancellation notice around 8:00, the party is on!
