    To all our Ride Managers, volunteers, and riders: Thank you once again for another outstanding year of OD rides, clinics, and competition. We closed out the ride season enjoying the glorious fall mountain foliage of Fort Valley with two spectacular days of 50/30 mile rides once again beautifully managed by Ride Manager Claire Godwin and her experienced corps of volunteers.

    Next year Fort Valley will be preempted on the ride schedule as the OD will be hosting the 2015 AERC National Championships in October at the Orkney Springs ridecamp (the site of the OD June ride). We will have the details posted on the website as they become available.

    Mark your calendars for
