Join us for the ride or stop by for the party afterwards. We welcome and encourage all those that love the Ausable to celebrate with us at the party after the ride. The party will be in full swing by 1:00pm with great food from the Hungry Trout Resort, live music by the Russ Bailey Trio, local beer, bike demos by High Peaks Cyclery, fly casting demos and instruction from the Hungry Trout Fly Shop, and we will be raffling great prizes from Columbia Sportswear and Patagonia.
Guitarist Russell Bailey's well earned reputation began with the hard edged electric blues band, The Bailey Brothers. Over the years, local audiences have followed his musical progression from blues rocker to finger picking folk singer playing a National Steel guitar, to exploratory jazz/blues improviser with the popular party band Crow Party. A couple years ago Russ formed the current trio with bassist Franz Pope and drummer Scott Renderer in pursuit of a pure and simple approach to the original sound and style of foot stompin' blues and boogie music in the days before rock and roll.
