For directions: Google doesn't show the park well. The address above will not get you exactly where we are meeting.

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 6:30.

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.

      Travis: I think some of the photos GoPro takes are even cooler than the video. If subject is close and camera is positioned right, it takes some really cool shots. Kem: is a photo every 30 secs. the only option, or can time be adjusted, to say, a photo every 90 seconds?

      Peter, yes you can change the time settings.

    Great ride although I got dropped by the fast first loop guys then took a wrong turn and ended up riding solo. I should've just waited for the slower group but bravado wouldn't let me. Second loop was great. Thanks Kem and Brian and everyone else.

      Hey man sorry to hear you took the wrong turn :S, it was a fast pace, but next time I'll stick all the way in the back, or someone else will.

      July 31, 2013

      No problem. Still a good ride. I'm not discouraged.

    Hey guys, make sure to give me a call/text if you're running late. Its good to know so we can wait up for you or I will not expect you, usually posting here last sec does not get seen until after the ride, thanks.

    Hey Kem what if you make instead of two but only one ride on Tuesdays ? That way we would have lots more people riding together! It's definitely more fun !!!!

    July 29, 2013

    • Rodrigo S.

      That's fair Kem !

      July 30, 2013

    • Kem C.

      I don't always see everyone stay for the second loop, we'll see.
