Next Adventure Ride from Empire Cycle

Discussion in 'Eastside' started by EmpireBob, Aug 17, 2012.


  1. OK, the last ride was great, and we have scheduled another adventure ride. Dale, our trailmaster, is planning another run in the mountains. It's scheduled for Sunday, August 26th, with the same routine as before. Breakfast at Jenny's Cafe on Sprague Ave. in the Valley at 7:30 for those so inclined. We'll meet at Empire at 8:30 to review routes and instructions, and sign liability releases, and leave the parking lot at 9:00 sharp. Typically, we will ride through the morning, grab lunch somewhere, and, depending upon the time, ride some more in the afternoon. Again, as before, the route is not technically challenging, although there may be a rocky trail or two (right, JR?), but even beginners can keep up, it's not a race, and we wait for everyone. Be sure to be gassed up, and carry water, it may be warm. Dale is waiting to hear back from the Forest Rangers to see if the desired course is open, and he will let us know tomorrow as to which course we are traveling.

    Rumor has it that James1300 may honor us again with his presence, and maybe Kevin.:scared
    Have fun, and let's get dirty!

  3. Regrettably, yes. I want to take my ball and play. I think I might also bring a friend. Bob, see if Dale can have another local history lesson planned, too. That was pretty neat at the riders brief.

    Fred, this is how it went last time...

    7:30 - Those who want to, can meet over at Jenny's Cafe up the street from the dealership. Her address is 9425 E. Sprague Ave., on the North side of the street. Good food, quick, and a big parking lot, perfect combo.

    8:30 - Meet at the dealership, for instructions and to sign liability release forms (attorneys, gotta love them). Be sure you are gassed up.

    9:00 - Leave for the ride.

    No, not yet.

    I don't want to buy anything this year, so I may have to wait until next year to join in.


    But I'll probably drop by for breakfast & the history lesson!
