Thursday Evening MTB Ride - Tyler's Traverse Loop


For this Intermediate after work ride, we'll start with a 1 hour fireroad climb....the new Tyler's Traverse access....up to the top of Tyler's Traverse.  The reward for our pain?  How about one of the best descents in Central Oregon; Tyler's Traverse (the whole enchilada)!  Tyler's is now a one-way trail, so we can let it fly without fear of meeting climbing riders.  There is an option to return from Kiwa Springs, for about 1/2 the distance.  Total about 20 miles, with about 1800' of climbing.  About 2.5hrs at a intermediate pace with no one left behind.  However, this is by no means a beginner's ride.

Good idea to bring lights, as we will be finishing at dusk.

Join us afterwards for a fun debriefing at a local brewery (who supports BACE with a discount), which will be announced at the start point.

    TT was in pretty good shape considering the race beating it's been taking. Fun group, great pace and a mean rendition of Free Bird by BACEr Natalie and Rare Boots post-ride at The Lot!

    Sorry for the last minute bail, y'all. Unexpected arrival this afternoon of the last parts I've needed to get my bike back in action. Yes, the one I've been waiting four months for! Hope Tyler's was awesome and I hope some of you can make it up to Bachelor tommorow afternoon for some bike park fun!

    Post-ride, we'll head over to The Lot, where member Natalie and her band will be playing from 7-9pm. Hopefully we'll make for some of the tunes.
