Bill Boles
Observations/Information: This was our pre-board meeting ride and we had six or seven TAs plus a special guest in NEMBA co-founder Bill Boles. We started at the Vet's Park lot and headed south on the blue and red trails with a detour on red/black. We then rode the purple and green trails before heading back. The trails were in good shape, dry and well ridden, no new problems to report. A breeze kept the bugs at bay. We all enjoyed the smooth, fast and twisty trails.

Tyler Mill is a popular riding spot on Wednesday nights. We crossed paths with several groups including another TA who had to borrow a multi tool from us for a chain repair because he had lent his to someone else.
