We closed the year out with our annual CO-ED Holiday Ride & Luncheon. 40 Riders showed up to enjoy 3 levels of guided rides in the Santa Monica Mountains and have fun at our lunch buffet & gift exchange. This year Susan Hall won the Most Improved Rider for 2015 and was presented with a large purple plaque!
