Join me and the BOBie cycling club on a SLOW climbing ride to picturesque Cogswell Dam, then up East fork to the GMR shack and loop back to the start.
Ride starts at 8.00 am, be at the meetup at least 15 min early to prepare.
Ride Level: 3 + and up. This is a mountainous CLIMB ride, be aware of the distance and endurance required for a ride this long, and for the elevation gained.
This adventure ride is intended to intentionally keep the group together as much as possible on the flats, climbs are at your own pace with scheduled regroups at the top of each, descending will also be at your own controlled, cautious and safe pace with scheduled regroups at the bottom of each.
Bring: Rear lights, plenty of water, nutrition food, a bike in very good working condition, the spirit of adventure and the desire to have a really good time.
If you are the rider that does not like waiting for slower riders, then this is not for you.
Please check the link below and see if you meet the requirements for this ride. If you are not sure, feel free to contact me through Meetup message or Call/Text me:

Helmets are mandatory on all BOBIE Cycling Club rides. Bring hydration, spare tube, nutrition and appropriate clothing to be comfortable during the entire ride. (The weather can and will change during the ride.) Be sure to have Sun Screen for HOT or SUNNY days.
Please be sure to bring a "Road ID" or similar up to date IN CASE OF EMERGENCY INFO list with you on all BOBIE rides to allow others to help you if you are unable to help yourself.
If you have a Garmin device please upload the route. Having the route on paper or in your Garmin is ALWAYS a good idea and the responsible thing to do!
Bringing $$ or a credit card to pay for any unexpected expenses such as bike repairs or transportation home is highly recommended. By not having any way to cover unplanned expenses when something goes wrong YOU shift that financial burden to those that are riding with you or create a situation where you are left stranded, which can lead to awkward feelings.
As with all BOBie rides this is a no drop ride. We will stop to regroup or rest, restroom and refuel as needed. Please read the description carefully to asses if you are well suited for this ride.
