2012 - 2013 Winter Night Rides

Postby danwalko » Fri Nov 09, 2012 7:42 pm

Winter Night Rides have been approved by the Parks. Rides only take place when the trails in the York County Parks are OPEN. Check the Parks twitter feed or call the Parks office 717-840-7440 to see if the trails are open. Ride Leaders have been asked to post under this topic if the ride is canceled due to inclement weather or trail closures.

All rides will have a leader and all riders will need to stay together in one group. If there is a large enough group, we would split into two groups. Please come prepared with appropriate lighting, warm clothes, and as always a helmet is required. Night rides are open to paid YAMBA members only due to our insurance regulations. Membership is only $20 per year for an individual and can be paid right here on the website - Join Us link above -- please join the club if you plan to attend a night ride!

Charge up those lights and get the warm gear ready!!! :)

The schedule for rides is as follows:

Note...

Lakes rides start at the Lake Redman Boat Launch parking area.

Rocky Ridge rides start in the front paved parking lot -- first lot on the left as you enter the park. DO NOT follow Christmas Magic traffic to the rear of the park.

Hey everyone,

The Parks has closed the trails at RR due to still unfrozen ground and the expected rain/snow overnight and tomorrow. Sorry but the night ride is canceled for tomorrow.

Sorry guys... the ride is canceled for tonite. Message from Mike is below:

Christmas magic is closed tonight…so the gates will be closed. Also, there’s about two inches of snow on the ground right now at the ridge…making the trails a muddy mess. Better cancel it for the evening.

Hey everyone,

Rocky Ridge is currently open and will be for tomorrow's night ride as long as the rain holds off. The weather I saw said it likely won't start til after 8pm which would be perfect.

Hopefully we can ride tomorrow!! Remember, if Christmas Magic closes, we are unable to ride even if the trails are open.

Let's hope the rain holds off for us! If we are a go, please be ready to roll at 6pm.
