*****We changed the date to accommodate the MOCO. Sorry for the inconvenience!!******
Join us for a hauntingly good time at Rosaryville. Wear a costume and decorate your bike!
Your costume should not interfere with your bike riding at all and you must wear a helmet. Other than that-anything goes!
Please call me [(fife-se'en-won)too-for-fife-fife-six-too-oh] if you suddenly can't make it or are running a few minutes late. If you've never been to Rosaryville before try to give yourself a few extra minutes as it is a little tricky to find the lot the first time.
Directions: We are meeting in the lot where the restrooms are. Pulling into the park you'll see one parking lot, but keep going, you'll eventually come to a fork, turn right at the fork, which will lead to another lot. That's where we'll be. Look for a blue Volkswagen Golf
Pace- **Beginner/casual Ride - 9-Miles (No-Drop Ride) This will be a casual pace, suitable to newbies. This will be a no-drop ride. That means that riders are at no risk of being left behind. Rosaryville is basically a big loop with almost no serious potential to get lost.
**If there are some who want to fly on their broomsticks through the woods we can certainly break up into two groups and have a faster pace group as well.
Rosaryville is an excellent trail of about 9 miles or so. It consists of a lot of tight, twisty single track with some short steep hills. The trails offer something for all levels, but tend toward moderate speed single track, with moderate climbs. Skills not needed, fitness is.

A few bits of advice for true beginners:
We will NOT be riding on pavement! It's all DIRT, gravel, sand, etc.
Dress appropriately (No sandals, wear a helmet, dress for the weather, etc)...it IS mountain biking, after all!
What to bring:
Helmet (no helmet, no ride)
Mountain Bike (Hybrid bikes are usually sketchy on trails)
Snack (salty will help avoid cramps)
Multi-Tool (although you can borrow one)
A word on etiquette:
It's an issue that's come up recently, so give this a read:
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.
