Thursday Evening MTB Ride - Bens, Whoops, Phils Loop

For this week's after-work ride, we'll start at the intersection of Bens trail and Forest Rd 4610.  After a warm up climb on Ben's , we'll transition to the top of Lower Whoops for a fun flight down.  After Whoops, we will ride over to Phils, connect with Kents, and use KGB to transition back to Bens and the cars

Ride 10 miles and 1000' of climbing.

About 1.5 hrs at a intermediate pace with no one left behind.  However, this is by no means a beginner's ride.

Join us afterwards for a  ride "debriefing" at The Lot, where they usually have live music on Thursday.

Ride Rating; Intermediate.  Endurance Rating E3; Technical Rating T3.

    Not too sure where the start is?
    perhaps I can meet at the start of Bens?

      The start is further up Ben's. Just ride up Ben's trail until the first road crossing (right before the little "techy" section).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
