February’s Get Outta Town Was a Smooth Ride

Every month (or so), OMBA puts together a ride where members can carpool together to explore a new trail system. February’s ride took the group to two neighboring trails: Harbins Park, and Fort Yargo. Weather was beautiful for riding, and the group had a fantastic time – although the last few miles at Fort Yargo proved to be rather challenging after riding Harbins.

February Lecture a Huge Success

Huge thank you to Ray Egan from Cycling Sasquatch for being our guest speaker at the February Lecture: Bikepacking Basics! We learned what essential gear to carry, where we can acquire said gear, and some insider tips to deal with cramps, aches, and the dull long stretches of a ride. We had a large group turn out for this event and look forward to having you join us for next month’s topic. Follow us on Facebook – or check back on our calendar – to keep informed on our lecture series.
