If you're doing the 6PM ride, it's advisable to bring lights, we may get caught in the dark towards the end of the ride.

Contact me for delays, I want to start on time but can wait a few mins 

240-421-425FOUR

For directions: We will be parked behind The Gardens Ice House, look for a pepper white mini cooper. The map will show the wrong place, but as soon as you get into the driveway, the ice house will be on your left.

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.

Video (Disclaimer, this video does not show uphills LOL.)

First loop (About 5 Miles) Moderate/Fast:

This pace is intended for the experience rider who wishes to push themselves above the average pace. These rides will seldom have regular breaks and require a significant level of fitness and bike handling skills in order to stay with the group.

2nd Loop Beginner Friendly Casual/Moderate: 

While still laid back and “casual” in nature this pace will have fewer stops/breaks along the way. Often times stronger riders will lead and attend a casual/moderate pace if the aim of the ride is more social in nature. Riders with an average level of fitness and at least a few months of regular riding under their belts should do fine on this level of ride.

Beginners, 2nd loop shooting for wheels rolling at 6:00pm.

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.

After the second loop, there is a night ride, not really part of my doing, since I don't lead it.

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.

      That's a really messed up way of falling, poor trail markings. That's something me and Jose have done in the past though, I collide, and he follows LOL

    How bright of a light do we need for end of 6pm ride. I only have a small light on bars mainly for cars to see me. Might need to purchase one.

      It's only dusky by the end of that ride, and enough others have lights that you should be fine. But a better light might be necessary witin the next few weeks. =)

    Wait, what? did I miss the memo, we're parking at the ice house now?

    September 30

    • Kem Chavez

      Yes, it's in the description. We don't want the night riders to get a ticket in the park's parking lot.
