This is a weekly ride.

Contact me for delays, or questions:[masked]FOUR

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 will be next to the bathrooms/basketball courts near the playground.

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.

    I was there for the 6:30pm ride - it was very fun and quite an adventure with reduced visibility.

      Joseph, LOL! Yeah, I'm the mud police, if you mess up the trails, you get a ticket... and you gotta pay me in CASH! Seriously though, if you guys are not MORE and IMBA members, you should seriously consider it. They donate a great amount of time and money so that we can have great trails to ride. Support them. +peace+ out

    Hey Kem, I think I will be there for both loops. I need to talk to you about Video editing - just did a company rafting trip and got it all on my GoPro, but need to make a shorter fun video out of it. See you tomorrow.
