Sat. easy mtn bike ride

  • Nov 9, 2013 · 9:15 AM
  • North Mountain Visitor Center

This will be an easy beginner+ friendly mtn bike ride starting from the

North Mtn Visitor Center parking lot. Let's meet at 9:15 am and roll at 9:30 am.

Meet in the south end of the parking lot. I have an older silver nissan pickup with a camper shell.

We can ride south to Mountain View park and back. Those that want a short ride can end at this point. Then we will ride east a couple of miles and back. We should be back by 11:30 am. If anyone is interested after the ride we can get a slice of pizza.

By beginner+ I mean you should know how to change gears, control your speed down hills, and be able to ride on dirt trails with some uphills.

It will be a relaxed pace with stops to rest/re-group as needed. (possibly frequent)

Bring your normal riding gear. If you're not sure what to bring, at least a hydration pack or daypack with about 2 qts. for drinking and a small snack like a cliff bar or similar and a spare tube in case of a flat. Helmets, gloves and sunglasses.

Directions: From 7th street and Thunderbird, head south about 1/4 of a mile.

Look to your right (west) for the visitor center entrance.

    I am definitely interested in going. I feel rather like a novice. Just in reach 11 for mountain biking. What happens if I'm too slow?

      This ride is for novice mtn bikers. Last week we had 2 first time mtn bikers. We stop to re-group/rest. During the ride we will pass by our starting point for those that need to bail out or just want a shorter ride.
