NEW RIDE TIME!! 5:30 IS THE OFFICIAL START TIME OF THE RIDE. HOPE THIS MAKES IT EASIER FOR EVERYBODY TO GET THERE. RIDE WILL START AT 5:30, OR VERY CLOSE TO IT.
I labeled this ride as "Strong Intermediate" because the climbs are steep and decently long. It isn't about the pace, I have no problem waiting (or getting waited for) at the top, but you need to be comfortable doing long climbs.
HEY!! This aint no mambie pambie ride...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaFy0x_Uixo
Weeknight workouts make weekend rides funner. I did this exact ride a couple weeks ago, approximately 2500' climbing and 13 miles. http://app.strava.com/activities/45351512
As always a helmet is required for all SJMTB rides and extra protective gear is recommended if you are tentative about riding down rocky trails. Extra water, a snack, and your basic trail side tools (multi-tool, tube, pump) should be sufficient for this longer ride.
Thanks again for riding with us!
