Night MTB - Phil's Trail - Ben's and Kent's

We'll ride up Ben's and down Kent's - in the dark, but with lights!  Please expect a[masked] minute ride.  To carpool we'll meet 6:00 pm at Goodlife or meet us 6:15 at the trail head.  Sunset is 6:30 PM. 

Though the terrain is moderate, the conditions at night will make the terrain more like an intermediate ride and require that you have very, very good lighting.

Lighting.  Folks seem to prefer 100 lumens or more.  Most find the simple 1 Watt LED headlamps insufficient.  I am riding currently with a 650 lumen Nightrider on the handle bars and a 250 lumen Nightrider helmet mounted.  There are many sufficient configurations - let me know if you have questions.

Bring water, energy food, lighting, bike repair gear, and appropriate clothing for inclement weather.  It's cold out after sunset so dress appropriately.

To carpool we'll meet at the parking lot outside Goodlife Brewing in Bend's Century Center.  That's just east of the Dutch Brother's on 14th, or just west of Nosler Corp on Columbia.  We will be in the parking lot on the emptier very north east side closer to Dutch Brothers.  Please be on time so we can leave at 6pm sharp.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
