CORBA Announces MTB Ride And Mingle Nov. 17

While there will be no Fat Tire Festival for 2012, CORBA will be organizing a group Ride And Mingle (RAM) on November 17, 2012 (rain date Dec. 2) to support and promote the ongoing efforts of its programs. But most of all, it’s a chance to mingle with our members and do what we love most: RIDE! In celebration of its 25th anniversary, CORBA hopes to turn out at least 250 mountain bikers in a show of solidarity for mountain biking and responsible cycling. Ride in then meet at The Hub in Topanga State Park at 10am. There will be some cash prizes (yes, you can win CASH), but mostly it will be a chance for a photo opportunity and to mingle among our riding brethren. Riders are encouraged to ride from their local trail heads.

Recent comments overheard at a public meeting got us to thinking that we need to show the land managers and open space trails community at large that responsible riders comprise the vast majority of mountain bikers. Unfortunately, a small percentage of people riding too fast at the wrong time is giving the off-road bicycling community at large a bad rap. The RAM will give mountain bikers a chance to show that we can and do coexist on trails.

We are also asking that you ride what you were riding in 1987 (if you have it) or any vintage mountain bike (pre-1992). If not, no worries, just come and enjoy a ride in one of the most beautiful places in the country.
