July 2022 Update
Haw Ridge t-shirts are available for pre-order through July 12th!
The t-shirts features our fresh Haw Ridge logo designed by Sara Whitt of SW Creative. Available in two color choices - lavender and yellow - these t-shirts will be available in sizes XS to XXL for $20. Funds raised through the sale of these t-shirts will go directly to building and improving the trails at Haw Ridge Park.
Send your choice of colors, sizes and quantities to email@example.com by July 12th and we'll contact you when they are ready to pick up. Don't worry, we'll order extra if you need more or forget to order one for your favorite trail buddy (XS will be the perfect size for some of our favorite trail dogs and kiddos!)
We'll be meeting at The Kitchen at Crafter's Brew located at 858 Oak Ridge Turnpike in Oak Ridge on Tuesday, July 12th at 7 p.m. with updates on trail work, projects, upcoming rides and events (including Hill of Truth Festival) followed by socializing. We'll have swag available too! Food and beverages will be available for purchase. Can't make it in person? Join us on Facebook Live via the link below. We look forward to seeing you!

This will be a great opportunity for anyone new to Haw Ridge to come out and have a fabulous adventure with fun and knowledgeable guides. *No-drop means there is a lead guide and a tail guide (sweep) so nobody gets lost and we can all stay together!
