This is a weekly ride.

For directions: Google doesn't show the park well. The address above will not get you exactly where we are meeting. If you look at the map as a sat image, you'll see the main driveway, which doesn't show up in map view, Make a left at the end of the driveway, the parking lot is right there. We'll be parked by the basketball/bathrooms side near the playground.

Please comment on what time you will be attending when you RSVP

About Fairland: 95% non-technical ride with few major climbs and no mandatory obstacles (they all have ride-arounds). Promise, no rocks. None! (there is one section of busted-up concrete, but it's not rocks, and it's only 10-15 feet long). Anyway, there are a couple good places to stop and practice log-overs, and balance on the boardwalks, and some good flow trails.

Intermediate Pace loop (Skill Level 4 / Fitness level between 3/4 (5 miles or so)

We will wait up at intersections, but most likely will start rolling when the last rider catches up. Fast paced, uphills kill me but I will do my best to get you guys a good run lol.

2nd Loop Beginner Friendly (Skill level between 2-3 / Fitness level 2 (about 7 miles or so)

A bit of a fast pace (will make stops at intersections if needed and short breaks).

Beginners, 2nd loop shooting for wheels rolling at 6.

Please keep in mind that this loop is to encourage beginners to join us, patience is needed from the faster riders, if you wish for a fast competitive pace, this is not the ride for you.

What to bring:

Plenty of water, helmet (no helmet no ride), your mtb of course!, multi-tool (although you can borrow mine), patch kit, extra tube (make sure it has the same valve you need for your wheel), a snack if you're doing both loops.

Note: Please read the document "Meetup Ride Waiver" (found under menu: More > Files > Meetup Ride Waiver) before attending this event. Mountain biking is an inherently dangerous sport, and by attending this ride, you acknowledge and have read, agree to and fully understand the aforementioned waiver.

    Here's a video of the ride, not many people appear on it, no fancy editing in this one, just video and music...

  • Kem C.

    It's suppose to rain Thursday morning, and scattered thunderstorms for the rest of the day, what do you guys think on a Friday ride?

    May 7, 2013

  • Jorge

    Are we going to get rained out? Probably Thursday?

    May 7, 2013

  • Thomas

    Hello Kem, I will try for 5pm. Not sure a 100%, but If I am there I would like to go a bit "snappy", so depending who is there at this time we can group.

    May 6, 2013

    • Kem C.

      Hey Thomas! Finally you pop up here lol, well, snappy is the idea, but me and you probably have a different view on "Snappy" lol. Weather is not looking great for tomorrow, we may have to reschedule to Thursday, I'll post an update tomorrow morning.

      May 6, 2013

    • Thomas

      :-) Well you know how I feel about weather (there is only wrong clothes) LOL - but I agree it does not look promissing and this trail wont be much fun when too wet. Maybe I catch up with you another day (will watch for another mail from you in the morning). Take care and have fun.

  • Jose T.

    Kem, do you want to change the information of this ride because you will be asking every week about making this a weekly ride, LOL

    May 3, 2013

    • Jose T.

      I made the change, is it OK how it reads or do you wish to make other changes

      May 6, 2013

      May 6, 2013
