Below is the 2017 schedule for the St. Charles County Parks night mountain bike rides. Rides generally occur every other Friday, April through December. GORC and SLAMB volunteers partner to manage these rides. Signing in and out at the trailhead is mandatory. No glass bottles are allowed in the parks at any of these events.
If you are interested in helping manage any of the rides, just pm me, even if last minute. Responsibilities include signing riders in and out, leading or sweeping for any new or inexperienced riders and providing trail side support as needed. Currently, we have muleskinner, tony c, goat, wheezer, gengen1 and msmodo.

In case of bad weather: The St. Charles County Parks & Recreation Programs & Events hotline, 636-707-0011 Extension #3 will be the Official source of information in cases of bad weather/iffy trail conditions. This status MAY CONFLICT WITH THE individual trail HOTLINE status (also 636-707-0011). (We may open a trail that's been closed all day if it dries enough for the MOONLIGHT RIDE to take place.) We will TRY to post night ride status here as well, but don't rely on it as your sole source of info.
