    NMB group ride and cookout! May 12th at Lock 4 in Gallatin.

    UPDATE!! - NMB Group Ride and Cookout - Saturday, May 12th, 1:00 PM - Lock 4

    EVERYONE IS INVITED - all race teams, bike clubs, etc...


    Bring your own food, we'll have a grill there, plates, condiments, napkins, chips, etc... Just bring your main course!! Ride at 1:00 or so, then eat around 3:00.


    Just pitching this idea to everyone. How about a get together at a local trail for a ride and cookout sometime in May. All are invited.

    First step is a date. We have a race at Tanasi on the 6th (Sun) and some are doing a road race on the 19th (Sat). Mother's day is the 13th (Sun) and Memorial day weekend is the 25th thru 28th (Fri -Mon). So I'm thinking either Sat the 12th or Sun the 20th.

    Next step is pick a trail. I'm in favor of Lock 4, it has shelters and a place for grilling, and seems to be the usual gathering place. I don't know much about HC or LH as far as shelter. Any other suggestions are welcome.

    Ok, as for time. How about 2 o'clock to meet and ride 3 o'clock to eat and then ride till whenever.

    Finally food. My wife and I will provide (plates, cups, napkins, forks/spoons/knives, ketchup, mustard, mayo, relish, and ICE.)

    Here is a list of items we would need.

    Lettuce/tomato/pickles
    Chips
    Burgers
    Hot dogs/brats
    Buns
    Drinks
    Gas grill or charcoal
    Any other side items you can think of!


    DATE: here are your 2 choices....Sat 12th or Sun 20th.
    TRAIL: Lock 4 Hamilton Creek Long Hunter (other)
    TIME: Start at 2 eat at 3 ride till whenever

    This is a family friendly cookout, so bring the kids.

    If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to let me know. Post up for a day and trail. Thanks!

    Higher Gound could be an option, they have shelters, they would want to $$ for property use but it would be a fun place..

    Either date is good with me, I will bring the HOT DOGS + BRATS w/ matching BUNS.

    LH has great facilities at the bottom of the big hill, but they can get packed in a hurry! My choice would be L4.

    Wow - awesome Jason! Taking care of business right away!! Love it!!

    Date - EDIT - Kim and I are changing our vote to May 12 due to some schedule changes at her work. We'll definitley be around on the 12th, but maybe not for the 20th.

    Food Contribution - We'll bring all the Chips we can once we see how many people are coming out.

    Location - I vote for Lock 4 with it's fun, somewhat intermediate trail, and a great location for parties!!

    Thanks Jason!! Just an added note - This party is an 'everyone is invited' party, not just a team party isn't it? (Not sure on the final outcome from the brief shoutbox talk.)

    Count me in on this. I will find a way there. Just let's not do it on Mother's day. Then I definitely would not be able to make it.

    "Mountain biking is about adventure and the rediscovery of your childhood freedom. It removes you from the daily grind and puts you in an environment with endless possibilities - wildlife, epic views, a personal epiphany about what really matters, and tasting your endorphins after a long, hard climb. The reward is looking back at obstacles, that are now behind you, and feeling like anything's possible." - Gary Klein

    I voted for May 12th at Lock4 since I want to bring my son and I am more likely to get him to ride part of Lock4 then Hammy.

    Let me know if I need to bring my grill.

    Looks like Sat. May 12th at Lock 4 is the place and date! Most people are excited about DSG, so I'll wait till it is over to start making plans for food and supplies. Some people have already posted what they can bring out, so hopefully nothing has changed. As the date gets closer, we can make final arrangements.

    If the weather's bad, we'll still have the picnic - just not the riding part. Come on by and say hello!!
