So the $25 gets me a bowl of chili and apple cider?

Sounds like a fun event; but an entry fee for a "fun" ride is a buzzkill.

I'll be there with a group of people. We'll probably do a self-guided ride.

$25 makes you one of the people that helped build the trails, as well as the trails to come. Worth every penny.

For the true tightwads, you can feel better opening your wallets knowing that a lot of shops give NEMBA discounts, so you can easily end up recouping your dough.

not to mention Highland gives you $5 off every lift ticket or 5% off season tickets

I don't have pics, but it was a good time. Not too technical overall, but some nice singletrack. Great riding weather too.
