SOCIAL RIDE - ALUM CREEK P1 MTB TRAIL
Thursday May 6, 2021 6:30pm
The Nocterra Trek MTB Team will be hosting a social ride at Alum Creek State Park at the Phase 1 Trail on Lewis Center Rd. Meet at the parking lot at 6:30. We'll plan to ride one lap at a relaxed pace. For those that have some extra ride energy, we'll play around at Gnomewood afterwards. Great chance to hit the trails and meet other mountain bikers. WEATHER CONTINGENCY: Meet at P1 mountain bike parking lot and do a road ride to the bike path and down to Westerville.

Grab your bike. Have an adventure. Build a community. Celebrate with beer.
WHAT IS IT?
We are assembling a team of mountain bikers to participate in group rides, organize day trips, and to explore epic trails and races together.
Nocterra Brewing Co. was started by a group of outdoorsy folks with an itch for the occasional adrenalin rush. We adopted the following motto as a guiding force for how we run the business:
Beer + Outside = Nocterra
Nothing better than a great hike, epic rock climb, or killer mountain bike ride to get you thirsty for a beer.
Trek's commitment to the outdoors and the sport of mountain biking, made them the perfect partner. They have some of the best equipment in the industry. No matter what kind of riding you like, they have a bike for you.
WHO CAN SIGN UP?
This team is open to anyone who enjoys or wants to learn about the sport of mountain biking. We accept riders of all skill levels and are more interested in building a community and having fun than standing on podiums. While we will have a few experienced riders that compete at an expert level, our hope is that they can help mentor those that are newer to the sport. At the end of ride, regardless of skill level, we still all just want to have a beer.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST AND WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
$110, which will include a sweet Nocterra Trek mountain bike jersey (see the team kit below) and a membership to COMBO, the Central Ohio Mountain Bike Organization. Just head to one of the three Trek stores to get your jersey and sign up.
Nocterra and Trek will be throwing in a few sweet benefits as well, but if you're just joining for discounts then you should find another team. This is about putting together a fun group that enjoys riding bikes and toasting with a beer afterwards.
We will have a full Nocterra Trek MTB Team kit available and members will be able to purchase additional clothing (shorts, jackets, etc...) at their own expense once or twice a year when we do group orders. Prices will vary based on the volume of orders we have.
There is no deadline to sign up, but the sooner you do, the sooner you get to start having fun.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Everything from "no-drop" group rides to training rides for big races. Events will include local group rides at Alum Creek State Park & Chestnut Ridge Metropark. Day trips to places like Dillon, Mohican, Great Seal, Devou Park in Cincy and Ray’s Mountain Bike Park. We will support racers at big events like Mohican 100 and the OMBC XC race at Chestnut Ridge. Occasionally we'll organize weekend trips tto explore epic trails like Brown County, Indiana for their IMBA Epic Trail System. Team meetings will be held at Nocterra or Trek Store to brainstorm some cool events and assign ride leaders. (When current restrictions allow.)
HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE?
Team communications will be run openly through a Facebook group that non-members will be able to join. This will allow non-members to follow our story, attend team events, learn what we're all about and help grow the community. We'd love for you to post pics, organize group rides and tell people about the fun you're having on your bike.
WHAT DO WE EXPECT OF YOU?
We're looking for positive people who want to participate in team events and love mountain biking. When wearing your supersweet Nocterra Trek MTB Team jersey you will be an ambassador for Nocterra Brewing Co. & Trek Bikes. While we don't require you to ride a Trek bike, we want you to consider them when you are ready for a new bike or need help with mechanical issues. They are the industry-standard for great service. Nocterra craft beer should be at the top of your list for post-ride recovery beverages. Cheers!
For folks looking for a larger role, we will need help organizing our events and posting to social media. Consider becoming a team captain or entertainment director.
The official team kit is packed full of "Trail Cred". Look sweet while you're shredding. To be part of the team you are required to have a 1 jersey, but you can order additional pieces at your own expenses. We hope you'll wear it with pride whenever you ride.
