Advanced Westside MTB Tour

We will leave back porch at 10:00 and head to Shevlin Park.  From there we will ride up Mrazek, to 4601, skyliners, Storm King, COD, Storm King, Whoops, Kents, back to Back Porch. That plan is tentative and adjustable. I am figuring around 4 hrs for the main ride. There will be many options to shorten the ride if you prefer and some of us might go a bit longer if we are feeling good. This is an advanced ride for aerobic level and technical. Strong and steady on climbs, fast descents, and regrouping at the bottom if need be. Bring easy food and water, it is getting warmer so water is getting more important.

    Sounds great...I will probably peel off at the bottom of SK since we have some late afternoon Easter plans. Looks like a perfect day shaping up weather wise. See you at Back Porch. Thanks for organizing.

    So between Elliot, I, and some others, the whole route has been verified. It is kind of a big route if you think about it ALL the way down SK, up COD, back up SK, down whoops and Kent's, all after doing Mrazek and Skyliner. I don't even know how far that is but obviously we can modify the route along the way and we may split at some point, or we will all just ride till our legs fall off:) if you drink out of the creek like I do, understand we will be stopping there. Bring sugar, ibuprofen, coffee, cold hot dogs, the whole enchilada.. Sleep well and see you in the am.

    Have you ridden Skyliners this season? I wonder if it's clear of snow and tree fall yet. Also is Storm King clear?

    • david b.

      I have good word on skyliners and storm king, I might have to do a little double checking on Lower storm king, but the route is not set in stone. I'll probably pre ride most of it tomorrow or at least double check with others. You know I think skyliners elevation is actually higher on the whoops side, seems wierd, but yeah they got that one already.

      storm king on south of century is totally clear. I think the only question mark is Skyliner's, only because it's North facing.

  • david b.

    So I was thinking, I know some people prefer to just do trail/dirt. If you prefer that, just meet us at Shevlin about 10:15. We can swing by shevlin on the way back too if some of you choose that option. Just post in the comment section here or notify me directly so we are not waiting for you at Back Porch.

    All of storm king to heli pad is great riding. No snow and most tree fall is cleared. Hoping to join the ride but I may have to catch up with the group at Shevlin entrance. I won't make Backporch by 10.
