Mid Morning GB Ride

This ride is intended for people who can sustain 10-12 MPH on the flats. We tend to go kinda' fast. Ride should be about 2 hours. If you cannot maintain this pace, you are not being fair to the rest of the riders.

 

This is NOT a beginner trail and has some fairly technical sections.

Distance: 10+ miles

Speed: 8 - 14 mph

 

Approximately 10 miles with hills, rocks, tree stumps and dirt. We will re-group periodically. We meet at CVS (free parking), ride down Douglas Blvd to the park entrance and then hit the dirt. The ride is a loolipop - we head out to Twin Rocks, go up Center Trail (or along the right outer side) to the benches, down the back side to Bykes Beak (the lower parking lot) and out to Doton's, circle back around and then head back to the cars.

We'll meet at 11 amHelmets are required. Please bring a bike in good working condition, water, a spare tube (not a patch kit), a snack (if you want), sunscreen, bug repellant and Technu (if you want).

 

Any questions, please call Terry (916)[masked]

    FYI - I looked in the cost of the Poppy Pass. They did raise the prices a year ago from $99 to the current $125, which is not changing. The $195 that Mark mentioned is more extensive, covering a larger variety of locations throughout the State.

    What a blast! Nice breeze kept the temps down. We mixed it up a little and everybody did great! Can't wait to ride with everyone again!

      We meet at CVS, go down Douglas to the park entrance and then hit the dirt. Going up Center trail (or along the right outer side) to the benches. Down the back side to Bikes Beak (the lower parking lot) and then onto Doton's and then head back to the cars. Takes about 2 hours +/- depending on how chatty everyone is. Hope that helps.
