A note on rides: Gracey Manor is the meeting place to ride, but there are no assigned leaders. So that all may have time to enjoy the activities, we suggest that groups leave [kickstands up] by 9 AM [or earlier] to have afternoon downtime before the evening events. Arrive 20 minutes before departure time. Print out rides you want to take beforehand.
Just a clarification on the name and purpose: We do not want to get involved with insurance or other legal ramifications. This is just a group of riders coming together, and if it becomes more than that, we will respectfully decline being involved in organizing a future event. While this event supports a local children's charity, your participation is voluntary. You are responsible for yourself, and the organizers assume no legal responsibilities.
A note to entertainers and vendors: If you are expecting to come here to make big money, this is not your event. Everything is run by volunteers who receive no compensation. If you want to volunteer, then contact us and your message will be routed accordingly.
