********** Membership has grown to a size where we stopped accepting new members for now. You can still put in a request to join but please understand it could be weeks or months before you hear back. *********
We are a niche group of social mountain bikers who ride a particular pace. Please read entire description.
Primarily an over 40 (and 50, etc) group. Though it's more about compatible pace than age.
Enjoys descents and riding rocks and other trail irregularities. Not a beginner group. Typical members have been mountain biking for years.
We are slow up hill. See diagrams 1 & 2 below for clarification. Put another way, if pedaling up hill you can keep up with other local bike groups (eg, LMB, DMB, Jeffco MTB), then this group will probably test your patience on the climbs.
Usually a little social time after the ride, either tailgating at the trailhead or at a pub or restaurant.
Safe and friendly, follows park / trail rules, good trail etiquette.
Self-sufficient riders. If separated from group each rider able to find their own way along route or back to their car. And while most riders will try to help if you have a bike problem, each rider needs to be able to deal with their own bike problems.
