Advanced Intermediate Cross Tour and Mtn Bike

Looking for a fun way to end your day?  Come join us on an intermediate speed, cross tour ride that incorporates road, and single track!  Strong mountain bikers are also welcome!

We'll start from Cascade Lakes Lodge and ride up Cascade Lakes Highway until we reach the single track where Storm King crosses the Highway.  Now the fun begins!   We'll ride Storm King to Grand Slam to KGB and eventually to Skyline Ranch road and back to the brewery.  Since there aren't any shortcuts to the road, please bring a light "just in case".

Also, be sure to pack an extra tube or two as the possibility of pinch flats is ever present when embarking on this type of incredibly fun cross tour ride.  This ride is not technical but does require a bit more concentration and bike handling skills on a cross bike than on a regular mountain bike, hence the advanced intermediate rating.  We will also encounter a small section of trail that is rated "Bend" black diamond which should be fine.  We will regroup at all intersections so that no one is left behind.

After the ride, we can warm up at Cascade Lakes Lodge.  If there is a large enough group I can ask for a gift certificate as well.  As the weather can change quickly at this time of year, please be sure to check back before the ride to see if there are any changes.

Ride Rating;  Upper Intermediate; Endurance Rating E2.5, Technical Rating T3.0 (to see rating descriptions, click "More" tab above and select "Files"), Estimate of 22 Miles and about 880’ of climbing? (complete guess...just go with it!)  About 3.0 hours.
