2013-14 TAB Winter Riding Session

This year we're making the winter rides OFFICIAL TAB RIDES!!!  Rick Metcalf has worked hard to put the season together along with the many volunteers that make club rides happen!  As with all CLUB rides, you must be a member to participate.  Guests are welcome to attend their first ride but must join TAB for subsequent rides.  

So if you want to compete for the prizes (yes, I said PRIZES), you must be a member of TAB (Join here).  Vittoria has agreed to donate $335.00 worth of product for this years Winter Warrior race.  Complete rules posted next week. Generally speaking, the harsher the weather the more points you can score. Are you tough enough to be a winter warrior....or can you go beyond tough and win the coveted elite level Spartan Winter Warrior?

Always check the CALENDAR as it serves any changes or modifications to the event.
