Here's a fantastic shuttle ride that's 100% singletrack and 200% fun! We did a shorter version of this ride a few weeks ago. Despite rain, sleet, wind & cold, we all finished with a silly grin on our faces! Better weather requires more miles........
From Wanoga Sno-Park, we'll depart at 9am and shuttle up to Dutchman Sno-Park. From Dutchman, the Mt. Bachelor connector takes us to the Metolius-Windigo Trail for a fantastic singletrack run down to Lava Lake. At Lava Lake, we pick up the Edison-Lava Trail over to Edison Sno-Park. Using the recently completed Dinah-Moe-Hum & Tiddlywinks Trails, we'll return to Wanoga SP, where it's a short drive back to Dutchman to retrieve the cars before our return to town.
We'll make a meal stop along the way, so bring lunch.
This ride is primarily T3. However, the first 4.8 miles of the Edison-Lava Trail climb to Kwolh Butte divide, with several short, steep, technical sections that we can hike-a-bike.
The pace will be moderate, best for taking in the scenery. However, participants should be sure they're up for a distance of 33.5 miles. Perfect for the stronger intermediate rider....also great for the advanced rider who's more interested in experiencing great scenery than moving up the Strava rankings. This is a group ride and we will stop as needed to keep everyone together.
Feel free to contact me thru meetup with any questions concerning this ride!
