Use Caution!! Please be observant as our fellow rides and the great guys “our volunteers” on those big green machines maybe just around the corner or just up over the hill. Show them your appreciation with thumbs up and a courtesy pass of right a way. Our guys give up many hours of their own riding time and their sleep to do a great job at trying to keep others happy on our trails. And just a few selfish people can take away the groomers pride of all they have accomplished and not to mention the big cost to our club. Please show some respect for the guys grooming during the early morning or late night hours.
