After much consideration, the Solid Rock Riders website suspended news coverage of trail conditions at this time. It will now focus on video work and features. News items have been demoted to archives.

This will allow me to utilize the time to explore alternative means of obtaining news material. Recently, there have been several incidents where inaccurate information had been released. As we all know, websites are very sensitive and must provide up-to-date and accurate material in order to retain readership. Once that readers encounter discrepancies, they will not return.

Thanks for reading.

SRR History

It was Spring 2007—a cycling group was organized at San Pedro Presbyterian Church and that's when this website was created. A cyclist suggested Solid Rock Riders for the group name, naming it after the congregation's contemporary choir named Solid Rock Singers. It was catchy; however, the group disbanded by Summer. The website was taken down not long afterwards.

In Summer 2011, the website was resurrected by the Spirit Riders, a cycling group sanctioned by Community Bible Church's SportsLife Program. Back then, the site reported the activities of the cycling group—that was it. By 2013, the website was dropped by the SportsLife program and it operated independently since.

By 2018, news reporting of the latest events of the Howard W. Peak Greenway Trails System began. By the end of 2018, due diligence was applied to make the website ADA compliant.
