GGG Anniversary Ride

Ok Ladies, its time to get together for our anniversary ride. Its been a little over a year since our first GGG ride in August 2008. Lets get out and get muddy Saturday, October 31, at 10:00 AM. Meet at the gate. Email Mel if you plan to come out so no one gets left behind. Don't forget to bring your camera and warm clothes. Lets start this season off with a strong showing of female riders at Growlers Gulch.

GGG Mascot

Gigi is the newest member to the Growlers Gulch Girls. She is still too young to be out on trail but it won't be long before she's running by Mel's bike.
