Southern Maryland Adventure Riders
Adventure riders come in all different lots...
Some ride to meet new people
Some ride to spend time with old friends

Others are friends who just ride...challenging themselves as well as each other..

So old friends and new is a place to coordinate those rides...

(side note...often the "encouragement" provided by friends is mixed with a few other ingredients (like sarcasm and ribbing))

So Lets Ride...
