A Fun Challenge

If you're looking for a fun challenge, this is it! Nature will be all over you by the time we're done.

WARNING: The terrain we will cover are very hilly and unpaved. Mountains bikes are the only acceptable bikes for this event. I wouldn't recommend this event for someone with serious joint problems.  We will take a couple of breaks, but this is not a leisurely ride; be prepared to maintain a decent pace.

Also suggested are a bottle of water and a bite to eat, such as a granola bar, fruit or trail mix.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a very popular area, and is frequented by people with dogs, riding bikes, and riding horses. Just be aware of your surroundings. Park where you can!

    I'm sorry I'm just realizing that this is tomorrow morning, on the same day as the paintball. Since I really am not able to do both tomorrow, unfortunately, I have to forfeit this one. I apologize for the late notice and I hope that this might be something that's scheduled again in the future.

    I just bought a bike but It's more suited to road and a little bit of trail vs. A mountain bike. Wish I could go. Maybe we can do another bike get together. Have a great time!
