    This years ride will be as good :thumb, if not better than last years :D

    The DRE with Scot Harden is now a limited number affair, so there will be more personal attention given. If you had the opportunity of attending last year, there was a great amount of information passed on even with the 40-50 riders that were there. And even with those great numbers everyone still had some attention - I can only imagine with a lower number the greater attention.

    The Adventure Routes will also be pretty spectacular, there are some slight changes planned for both routes to keep you guys on your toes (depending on the route you choose!) and all for the better so it will be good.

    Here are a couple teasers from last year - some are from the above mentioned ride report, some aren't!

    A nice view of everyone's ass!!!, but stretching is important! That is Scot with the Kini Pants towards the left

    I don't know how to upload a short video... but I have one of crossing that train trestle... if anyone is interested let me know... it is something to see!

    And that my friends, is the Nickel Belt in a nutshell... :thumb :thumb

    The food was great, the people are friendly, the trails are awesome, the instruction and staff are helpful and knowledgeable - we met lots of friends that we look forward to seeing this year!
