Wow, OC Parks does it again with a great event!
Over 500 happy faces filled Whiting Ranch Wilderness Park for the 2013 OC Parks Poker Ride.
Participants rode through Whiting Ranch as part of the second annual Poker Ride event presented by Orange County Parks. Orange County Parks, in partnership with Oakley, presented the event that featured more than 500 participants on Oct. 12 event. Men and women of all ages challenged themselves on trails leading to poker checkpoints along the way.
