10875 Hampton Rd, Fairfax Station, VA
What: Lower Intermediate to Intermediate Ride at FH!
Pace: Approx. 7-8mph, good for regular riders, not so much for beginners. This is a no-drop ride, you may feel that you are going to get dropped but we will regroup at intersections and make stops as needed to enjoy the park. I tend to go fast on downhills, but no worries, I slow down on hills haha.
Terrain: Ranges from easy to difficult. Some of the trails are fairly smooth, and there are a few steep climbs, and some technical sections, and 1 stream crossing, just be advised that the terrain can be difficult in places. This trail will make you work, if you haven't ridden in a while, you may find it too demanding. Advanced beginners are welcomed.
Distance/Time: Approx. 10 or so miles
Duration: Since this ride will be more in the casual side of intermediate, put aside at least 3-4 hours to complete this group ride, we don't want to rush. Time depends on group dynamics, trail conditions, wait-ups, mechanicals and/or number of breaks (we will take at least one 10–15 min. break if needed). Bring: Helmet (required), water, spare tube/patch kit, multi-tool, I.D., emergency contact info where it can be easily located on your person, a MTB is also a good idea ;)
Weather: Shine Only, the trails will be closed if wet at FH. Check the trail conditions before heading out, call (703)[masked] or at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Fountainhead-Regional-Park/207150099413259. Directions: 10875 Hampton Rd, Fairfax Station, VA 22039 Where: We will meet in the parking lot directly in front of the trail entrance, by the mini golf course.
Please try to be on time! Wheels on trail by 9:15!
