Join the South Windsor Parks & Recreation Department in our 1st annual Poker Ryed! Four trails, four miles, three or four laps, five or seven cards!
 
 Come and see why those who ride Rye Street call it "a great workout" while trying your luck to create a winning hand! This family-friendly event is not a race! All experience levels welcomed.
 
 Eight bridges, six downhills, endless roots, and one skinny ride on the tight twisty trails created by the SWPRD Parks Crew. You will cross and recross dry brook as the terrain meanders through the hills and valleys hidden in woods of Rye Street Park.
 
 Your $10 fee for this event includes three or four varying laps around our course, one beer ticket, one shirt, and one raffle ticket.
 
 Format and course: this event involves riding your bike to five or seven different stops, drawing a playing card at each stop, and trying to assemble the best poker hand you can. The top hand will be awarded a CASH prize of half of all proceeds. The route will consist of singletrack.
 
 
 Online registration is encouraged. In-person registration begins at 8:00am on the day of, and the ride start window will be 9:00am - 11:00am. Our Ryed will be held at Rye Street Park (get it??) along with Connecticut Valley Brewing Company, The Bike Shop, South Windsor Walk and Wheel Ways, Iron & Grain Co. and kids activities!
