Sorry, it isn't a joke.
We are sponsoring a "team" this year:
*A mountain team.*
2 members of said "team" came in to the shop today. We began chatting about being in the mountains and experiencing the dirt and trees. All of us became rather desperate sounding as the talk went on. We want to ride. Soon.
But, we need the snow to stop. Do we need to write congress? Do we need to run our SUVs all day and night for accelerated Global Warming? Do we need to have a non-rain dance? Tell us; We'll do it. (I'm kidding, by the way, about the SUV thing... sort of).
When the time is right, we will be out there tearing it up and smiling the whole ride. This means we are going to try our damnedest to get a weekly/monthly group mountain ride together. I hope you will join us in the mountains when the time comes. Bring a snack, a friend and a good attitude and we will show you a great time. We'll let you know more as we know more.
