Mt. Bachelor Bike Park Session and Skills Practice

And now for something completely different.  Let's get together at Mt Bachelor's park for some bike handling practice and downhill runs.  We can run some drills in the West Village lot, then grab Twilight lift tickets for $19 and try out the park.  So far just Lava Flow and Rattlesnake trails are open, but hopefully the rain will melt out Last Chance by Friday.  Be sure to carefully read Mt Bachelors Park Info page for equipment recommendations, etc.   Don't fret making the 2pm start--we'll make a pass by the pop-up tent every couple runs to top off on water and check for late arrivals!

Park Info

 This will be an intermediate to advanced session; there are no green runs in the park yet, but if you can ride Tyler's and Whoops, you can handle Lava Flow.  Protective gear can be rented at the Sport Shop.  I'll have water and sun/rain shelter--bring some lunch, rain jacket, and your usual self-sufficient ride gear.

    I plan to be in Bend/Redmond next weekend. Was planning to do the loop around Bachelor from Bend, saw this Meetup site and figured I'd check it out, see if anyone else was interested. Might be interested in other ride options if there is a Meetup next weekend, its always more fun to ride with others. I love Central Oregon and would be interested in riding in the area in the future so I'll keep a watch on BACE.

      Hi Dan, welcome to BACE. Keep checking the calendar for upcoming rides. You may want to send a note to the general organizers contact page--it will get seen by all the BACE organizers, not just the members subscribed to this ride thread. See you on the trails!
