Tumalo Ridge, Swede Loop, Sec 16, Whoops, Skyliners - Intermediate MTB Ride

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!
