No December Work Party

It's the holidays and SORBA Woodstock is going to take a break from trail work in December. No work party this weekend.

Thanks again to all of our great volunteers who put in many, many hours of trail work, Mountain Goat Adventures, Free-Flite Bicycles, Outspokin' Bicycles and Sixes Pit Bicycle Shop who contributed to our great trails this year.

You have plenty to look forward to in 2015 and we'll see you then.

In the meantime, get out and ride!
