Spokejunkies first ride is Saturday, April 27, at Mohican State Park #letsride

Just a reminder for the mountain bikers out there. The Spokejunkies are holding their "First Ride" event this Saturday at Mohician State Park. You don't have to ride the entire trail (24 miles), there are a number of options for shorter routes. 

In addition to riding, there will be food, raffle prizes, and best of all beer. Last year about 70 riders showed up. Everyone had a great time. Below are the details from the FB event. They goofed and made the event public to group members instead of public to all. The Spokejunkies are a free club/group. Join the group and then RSVP for the "First Ride".

-------------------
First Ride Details are here! This is going to be the biggest and best Spokejunkie First Ride! It has been an awful Spring, so I am sure you are anxious to get out and ride -so come on out and join the fun! The event takes place Saturday, April 27, at Mohican State Park. This is an Open event, all Mtb'rs are invited. This is not a race, but a social event. We have a change of venue this year as Josh at Mohican Adventures has graciously let us use his Pavilion. It has Plenty of tables, 2 Large Grills, facilities, and plenty of parking for everyone! Best of all Beer is allowed! It is Across the Street from the Park just past the mini golf and slightly before the MTB lot. There will be a sign out on Route 3 so Hopefully you will not miss it! All riders should park and meet there. If you still choose to park at the MTB lot you can ride your bike to the Pavilion. The ride will start at 11am, so that means be ready to RIDE at 11, not arrive! After the ride we have our traditional “Trailgator” – everyone contributes a side dish/dessert/condiments to share, you are responsible to bring your own meat or main course to grill. (there will be a food list posted later, so not to duplicate). We also will be having our First Ride Raffle. These funds help the Spokejunkies, however this year, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the Mohican Malabar bike club. They help maintain this fabulous trail that we all utilize, and this is a great way to thank them and show your support. I have commitments from 4 Ohio Bike shops, and others to help make this the biggest raffle yet!
Contributors include:
*Roll Bike shop in Columbus (Polaris)
*Bike Ohio in Bainbridge
*Edge Outdoors in Medina
*Kims Bikes in Loudonville
*Fred Peters / Fast Freddy Headset Caps
*CAMBA ( Purchase of their merchandise from raffle funds will support CAMBA)
* Spokejunkies
Roll Bike shop will also be bringing some Demo bikes! This is a first for our event, more details will follow.
For those who may be attending for the first time, The ride is broken up in groups according to ability. Most riders do not complete the entire trail. (it is only April!) Some will skip sections to shorten the ride. There is a short loop for beginners. Generally we allow for 4 hrs of trail time. Festivities start as riders who are done early can get the grills warmed up! So expect the Cookout to begin at approximately 3:30. If you have not RSVP'd on Facebook do so, or join the group for more details. This helps our contributors have an idea of how many riders to expect. Hope to see you there
