End of Year Winter Ride
December 31, 2020 All day
The Winter Ride, aka End of the Year Flagpole Ride, Slip and Slide, Winchfest, Donner Party East, …it goes by many names. And now, it's back.
Once again, we will be taking a group of folks who lack sense and have higher than average body temperatures for a quaint, enjoyable family ride through George Washington National Forest. Because this is frequently a difficult ride the trail leads will enforce a turnaround time of 1230 if they are not halfway through the trail by then. This insures you will be close to getting off the mountain by night fall (~5pm) in reasonably difficult conditions. A lot of the fun in this ride is the team work it takes to even get halfway there if conditions are bad, but another important part of it is the cook out where we all get together either on the trail or at the Pavilion off of Briery Branch road and share stories along with good food.
