JULY 21, 2018
Join Buck's Bikes for our inaugural Founder's Day Poker Ride!
This is a non-competative mountain bike ride that showcases the trails in and around Seabrook. Been wanting to take your mountain bike to Seabrook? Now you have a reason! Join us as a start this adventurous tradition.
Format: One card will be given upon registration, four cards will be drawn at four locations along a 6.5 mile route consisting of fire road and singletrack. An optional 6th card is available for completing the climb challenge up the Gnome Trail. Winning hands (Three of a Kind or better) receive prizes, with specific prizes for best hand and worst hand. THIS IS NOT A RACE. Card draw stations will be roughly 2.5 miles apart with personnel to assist in the event of an emergency. (Someone will have a cell phone with reception, on them.)
Kids Poker Ride
Your little shredders can ride as well! Our Kids Poker Ride will have a 2.5 mile distance riding on the Narnia Trail, wide single-track and fire road. They will receive one card at the start, pick up another on the way and receive three cards upon finish! An extra card will be given to those parents that are registered for the main ride who ride the Kids Poker Ride with their own kids! Kids who complete the ride will participate in the same awards ceremony and will have their own category for top five hands (and worst hand).
Expert, 2 laps, 14 mi. - Online $30, On-site $35
Intermediate, 1 lap, 7 mi. - Online $30, On-site $35
