This is a good opportunity to remind ALL riders that if you are planning on attending a ride you should send your entry in early as this helps prevent rides from being cancelled and then rider managers being told "I was going to enter, I just didn't get to it yet." Most rides have a deadline to receive a discount on the entry fee which is also the 'drop dead' date to decide if the ride will be held or not.
The first weekend in May brings a clinic in New Hampshire on May 6th (Friday). Information can be found on the ECTRA calendar as well as HERE. The VERDA Brown Bag CTR will be held on May 7th and Bare Bones Endurance ride will be held on May 8th (information on both may be found HERE), and the NJTRA 100+ CTR will be held May 13 - 15. Deadline to enter the NJTRA ride with a discount is MAY 3RD!!! Information and entry form for NJTRA can be found HERE.
If you're thinking to yourself 'Wow, that's not a lot of rides for May' - you're right. With the loss of the Maine rides the next ECTRA CTR will be at GMHA on June 11th, followed by Brookfield in NY at the end of the month. So remember, if you want these rides to continue, please enter early!
All ride entries that have been sent to ECTRA are located on the calendar page for that ride (or if the ride has a website there will be a link to the website). If you have any questions about entries please contact the ride secretary or manager of the ride you are interested in attending – contact information will be found on the sanctioned ride list as well as on the calendar page for each ride.
