Wheels roll at 10:00 am. If you're not there, you're not there. :) Plan to arrive early to give yourself plenty of time to park, get ready, check air pressure, etc.

Pace

This ride is best suited for intermediate and above mountain bikers with at least a moderate base fitness level. We will stop periodically to regroup, rest, etc. as needed.

 

What to bring

You'll need plenty of water, some food, and a basic bicycle repair kit including a tube that fits your wheels. Check the weather and pack extra clothes as needed - weather in the mountains can change quickly.
