Singletrack Social Ride Moves Back to Spring Canyon Park This Week - Earlier Start Time

September 1, 2015 by overland

With the waning sunlight and shorter riding time, starting in September, we are moving the Singletrack Social back to starting at Spring Canyon Park.  We will meet at 5:30pm at the Spring Canyon Park parking lot near the dog park, so we can be riding by no later than 5:45pm.  We will get in what riding we can before dark.  Shoreline trail is still closed, so those who want to do a longer ride may want to turn north at the top of Maxwell instead of heading all the way up to Rotary Park.  Post-ride will be at Kenny's house.
