Just one more thing to look forward to at Masons Midsummer Meltdown.

A friend of the Trail that goes by the name of Freight Car on the Earth Riders forums is holding a raffle to benefit Trail Masons efforts at Wyandotte County Lake. He is Raffling off a Canfield Brothers YelliScreamy frame in your choice of color and size. He will be selling tickets at many of the social rides around town and you can also contact him via the #s on the poster to get tickets over the phone. The raffle itself will end on July 7th and be drawn at The Masons Midsummer Meltdown Race. (This is separate from the official M3 Race raffle). Next time you see him give him a big Thank You for stepping up and supporting local trails and riders. Hope to see one of you bombing down the new Oz technical offshoot on your new YelliScreamy soon.

FYI we have posted a preride cue sheet and trail map just click the link on the right side of your screen.

The cue sheet is usable with the trail map or simply by using the intersection numbers that are posted at each and every intersection of the trail for your navigation pleasure.

Feel free to drop by our normal Wednesday night social ride at 6 pm main trail head and we will most likely treat you to a personal tour of the course after a race lap we might even drop in and check out the progress on the new Oz technical of shoot and finish off in normal Wyco fashion with good conversation and refreshments post ride.

Epic Bike and sport will also be leading an official Group preride starting at 6:30 pm main trail head on June 26th and July 3rd. Garet Steinmetz and Mark will Be your tour guides for the faster folks and I will be on hand for a no drop group that will be rolling a bit slower.
