Don't Shop, Ride! Boxing Day on Burke

  • Dec 26, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • Burke mountain

Ditch the deals (or shop online ahead of time) and come do some laps on Burke.  We'll ride until we drop ... or the ghosts of Christmas food past haunt us too strongly.  Trails may include: Franks, Lower Elevator, Garbage, Braap and Hustler.

All trails are intermediate and up and have lots of rocks, roots, short steeps and a few drops. Braap and Garbage have a couple jumps that are super fun!  Fun, easy holiday pace.

We ride rain or shine but will cancel in case of monsoon conditions. Check the site prior to heading out if conditions are iffy.

Meet on Harper drive just east of Coast Meridian Rd at the switchback. Please be ready to ride for 10 AM. Please call me at[masked] in case of lostness or lateness.
