Advanced Swamp Wells Tour

Here is a picture from today(Thursday) at Swamp Wells. There may be a little snow at the top, but conditions are generally excellent. This loop should take us about 3 hours. It is 26 miles with about 2000 feet of climbing. Technically it is not that challenging but it is a long ways out in the woods so bring food, proper clothing for 5,500 feet elevation, and emergency supplies. This ride is for advanced riders, the pace will be kind of fast. We will wait for dropped riders periodically. This should not be your first ride of the year. If you would like to ride out with me, meet at the senior center at 9:30 with a 9:30 departure, no turn around time at senior center. There will be extra credit riding afterwards TBD but most likely would include swinging by a coffee shop and heading west for something:)

This trail is the best thing going right now, it's gonna be a great day!

    Excellent! "Advanced" is right. We estimated the ride to be 26 miles--all single track--and we rode in 3:20. Rippin!
