It was about three months ago when teammate Wes Castro shattered his hip during a practice DH run on one of the segments of the 2010 Winter Series. Since then our Team has been planning a fund raiser/raffle to assist with Wes’ medical bills. In conjunction with The Path bike shop (located in Tustin, CA) a BBQ & raffle was held at their retail store today at 1:00 pm.
Earlier in the morning we had a big group ride…and I mean BIG. Meeting at the Albertsons’ parking lot in the City of Orange were 40+ riders. This was a combination of members and friends of MtnBikeRiders.com, The Path and STR (SocalTrailRiders.org) – one BIG family within the mountain biking community. Through our ride, we made many stops to regroup. We had riders from of all skill levels but no one was left behind. We did a couple of loops within Santiago Oaks Park and Irvine Regional Park. The ride was a total blast!!! 🙂
Below are pictures from today’s ride.
