Gateway Park fundraising ride at Dupont hosted by UpState SORBA. The rides are free but we will take donations for the new Flow Park. Plus a raffle with tons of schwag, a SMOKE frame and more!!

Meet at Sunrift (Downtown Travelers Rest) 9:00am May 22nd. Rain date May 23rd. Check for weather and other general updates.

9:00 – 10:00 Buy raffle tickets for gear donated from local shops. Free “safety checks” provided for children and beginner rider’s bikes (Performed by a qualified mechanic).

10:00 Carpool to Dupont @ Guion Farms parking area. You can meet us at the farm check for directions @ 11:30 if you want to skip Sunrift.

We will have three ride groups, beginner/children (4 – 8 miles, intermediate (10 – 15 miles) and expert (20 – 25 miles). We look forward to seeing you!!

This event is being organized by our very own Jonathon Laroy to raise some money for trails in the upstate. It is also a good opportunity to get out and experience Dupont under the direction of a tour guide. If you have ever looked at a map, the place has a few turns. I will be taking the boy up Friday night to camp and hitting the trail head on Saturday to meet up for the beginner or intermediate ride. If anyone is interested let me know.
