[RC] "Let me get this straight. .." - Rides 2 Far
The bottom line is, you want 25
> rides you don't have to trailer to that are sanctioned by AERC.
I'll let you in on a dirty little secret. Nobody gets to compete in a
ride close to home. Know why? Cause if it's you're own home trail, you're
going to be cutting trees, marking trail, being a spotter, driving the
rescue truck, hauling water to remote areas... all sorts of things that a
person has to be a local to accomplish. The only reasons to have a ride
near home are to show off your trail to your friends, and put on a ride
*for them* out of appreciation for the fact that they put on rides for
you. It's work. It's expensive. I used to wish we had local rides. Now
I secretly wish they'd just forget it because I'd rather spend those
weekends driving to someone else's ride.
