The first 2019 VVCC Mountain Bike Friday FUNdraiser Ride on January 4th attracted 20 riders with three from Colorado
If you think that mountain biking and beer go together, the VVCC Mountain Bike Rides MeetUp Friday FUNdraiser ride is for you.
Each Friday, 10-25 mountain bikers meet at the Verde Valley Bicycle Company at 743 N. Main Street in Cottonwood for a ride on the trails at Dead Horse State Park. The ride starts at 11:15 AM (wheels rolling) and is a no-drop one that covers a little over 11 miles taking just about 2 hours to complete. The park usually waives the entry fee - plenty of regulars have annual passes or are Patrollers - and the trails offer a challenging experience.
Après ride, beer from Lagunitas Brewery and socializing opportunities abound. A donation box is available, but the après' emphasis is on FUN, not "raising". Since the first ride on October 19th, $456.00 has been raised for Western Gateway trail construction.
Hope to see you there!
