Taco Tuesday Small Group Intermediate Mtn bike on the D.R.T.

Let's ride the beautiful and fun Deschutes River Trail for this Taco Tuesday ride.  We'll start at the Lava Falls parking lot and then continue to Benham Falls where we'll head back.   We'll ride at an easy intermediate pace taking care not to run down any hikers or fisherman.   This is a social ride...no one is ever left behind!  This is 7.3 miles one way or a total of 14.6 miles of mostly flat terrain (1 hill).

This is a small group ride....thus limited.  Please note that if you have been noted with 2 or more "no shows" for BACE, in the past 12 months, you will be moved to the wait list if the ride fills up to accommodate those riders that are more reliable.  New BACE members will get preference on this ride! 

Remember to bring your forest service pass if you are going to park at the Lava Falls parking area as you will need it as of May 1st. 

After the ride, those inclined, can head to Cascade Lakes  Brewery for Taco Tuesday where we can purchase cheap tacos and margaritas.   This particular ride is not recommended for novice or very beginning riders as the pace will be easy breezy intermediate.  Trail is recommended for mountain bikes, adventuresome cross bikers, or fat bikes.  

Please remember that the Taco Tuesday ride is a social ride;  We ride, we laugh, we drink beer, margaritas, water etc., we have fun.

    Nothing turns an easy/breezy Tuesday ride into a whirlwind through the woods like knowing there are margaritas and tacos at the end - weeeeha!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
