Let's get a list of all the regular rides that happen every week.
Weds - Canal trail from AJBW. Meet at the shop or somewhere along the route. Ride rolls out of the shop at 6:30 and drops into the trail via the southern entrance. Generally ride two or three laps with stops at the trailhead to regroup and chat, then back to the shop, usually back around 8:30ish. Food at Teresa's in North Augusta afterwards. All levels of riders are welcome, and all levels usually show up. Here's the route: andyjordans.com/articles/augusta-canal-towpath-mtb-singletrack-pg172.htm
What else is happening out there??

I try to organize a mountain bike ride Thursday nights, normally start at 6pm, at various trails. We include most of the trails in our rotation. Boyd Pond is the go-to trail in wet weather. Usually a fairly low number of people, and a range of speeds (I am very slow nowadays). Not married to either day of week or time.
For the last 2 summers, we met at Fort Gordon on Tuesdays, about 5:30 pm, for a road ride. If I can't get in Gate 5, that may not happen this coming year.
If all goes as planned there will be a regular SORBA-CSRA group ride out at FATS on Thursday nights as well starting at 6:30pm.
The first one will be March 15th (just after the change to daylight savings time) if weather and trail conditions are good. We'll have someone riding sweep so this ride will be suitable for riders who might not can maintain the intensity level of some of our faster ride groups. Will only have about an hour of daylight for that first ride so will probably stick to the Skinny but it is a start.
Saw this on Chain Reaction's FB status: "Inviting everyone to ride or walk for health on Monday at 6:00pm at the savannah rapids pavilion . Chain Reaction Bicycles will host this event every Monday night until fall. Everyone is welcome and the pace and distance will be from beginner to enthusiast . Something for everyone. Now that the time has changed get out and exercise and do it with your friends. See you all tomorrow night."

The SORBA-CSRA ride at FATS on Thursday at 6:30 looks good to go right now. Again we'll have someone riding sweep so no one will be left out on the trail. We need to be ready to roll by 6:30 so there is plenty of time to get off the trail by dark.
