Mountain Bike Ride at China Camp - beginner series ride 5

The north bay's China Camp Park is known for its fun, flowing trails with beautiful trees and scenic vistas.  

Come explore this fabulous park on our beginner-friendly ride.  The 2 hour loop we plan to ride is about 9.5 miles with only 900 feet of climbing.  The trails are not super technical - but tons of fun - and a great place for beginners to practice their mountain biking skills.

Then, if anyone wants to get in some extra mileage, join us for lunch and a second loop at a faster pace.  Total mileage for both loops is around 20 miles.

You will need a mountain bike in good working condition, helmet and water.  We also recommend bringing snacks and a camera - the views are great here!  If you plan to stay for the extra mileage - bring lunch and extra water.

China Camp does have a 5$ fee to ride, you can pay by cash or credit card at the entrance to the trail or when you enter to park.

Rain cancels the ride - check back here for cancellation information.

Hope to ride with you soon!
