TMCS bike club '07

Hambone and I have started a new year of bike club. It's been really fun so far, we have darknight and girlscout back as advanced ride leaders,Hambone and I take the beginning riders. We have a lot of new kids this year which means a few X mart rigs but a few have already upgraded and I think the rest will soon. One exicting thing this year is we have had a lot of young ladies come out to ride. Hambone's whole family is out with us and we have several father/daughter or father/son duos so that makes it fun.Darknight and Girlscout have really stepped up and taken some of the work load off of us old guys,I'm really proud of them. It seems like this thing just continues to grow. Here are a few pics from yesterdays ride.

Club Pic........


one of our ladies....


The spinning Hambones......


Cornmill shoals river crossing.....


Lady hambone wondering why her hubby is such a wuss.....


Another young lady on the trail...

I'll post up a few more later.

Parents these days, I tell ya. I'm calling CPS.

Is that a school or a community-based club?
Its a school club. I would have called him out on the number plate but he could hurt me.
