Beginner Ride @ Government Canyon (Mountain Bike)

We are meeting at Government Canyon for a Mountain Bike ride.  We are riding the frontcountry trails.  These are pretty flat and not very rocky dirt trails.  The frontcountry ride is about 7 miles but we may add an extra 4 miles.  I will tell you if we are doing this so that you have the option of continuing or not.

There is a fee of $6.00 to enter the park unless you have an annual state park pass.  Helmet required.  Emphasis-- Helmet required on all rides and bring 2 or 3 liters of water for yourself.

 

Meet at:

Look for the dark green mountain bike. I will probably be wearing black shorts and a blue shirt. We will meet at the visitor center close to the water tower and bathrooms.

The Usual Stuff:

As with any park we mountain bike there are smooth parts and rocky parts and any part that makes you uncomfortable you can walk though it. Make sure you have water, sun block, and wear a helmet.  When we ride we will have some rest stops along the way to let everyone catch their breath. I will only be there if there are people who RSVP "YES" by the RSVP deadline.

 

Rain cancels this event.


The deadline to rsvp "Yes" for this meetup is the day before the meetup.

Make sure you have enough water for yourself. I probably carry about 3 liters worth of water for myself.

      So its not misunderstood I am not discouraging anyone from riding on Sunday. I am just saying there is a chance of rain that day so come ride on Saturday or ride both days if they are both good. But if it does rain then you miss out.
