Here's a great intermediate level ride for those who didn't get out of town for the holiday! From Skyliner Sno-Park, we'll climb Tumalo Ridge to Swede Shelter. From there, it's a fun loop around Swede Ridge before Sec. 16 and a fun descent down Upper Whoops to Junction 29. We'll finish with one of my favorites.....Skyliner Trail.....back to the cars. Plan lunch afterwards at Parrilla!
This ride features a long climb, some rocky technical sections and LOTS of flowy singletrack!
The pace will be moderate, best for taking in the scenery. Not extreme, but not a beginner ride. Perfect for the intermediate rider....also great for the stronger 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!
