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.
