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.

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.

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.

    I can not make this Tuesday. I am thinking of riding on Friday at either 5pm or 6pm if the weather holds up. If any one is interested please let me know

    I'd love to go this Tues but don't have a car that day. Any chance I can get a ride from somebody in Northern VA? I live in Alexandria. I can give rides next time!

      Normally for weekday rides, most of the riders come from around MD, sometimes we get some from VA, but its rare :/
