Moderately-paced Mrazek Out & Back Intermediate Mtn Bike

This will be a casual, Intermediate, moderately paced ride for those who enjoy climbing, but would like to do so in a relaxed style.  Mrazek is one of Bend's beloved trails because it has great flow in both directions.  It even has its own Facebook page!

While the climb up Mrazek isn't extremely difficult, it seems wonderfully endless.

We'll likely be climbing for an hour or two as we make our way up to the turnaround spot for this ride near the 500 and 700 dirt roads.  We'll gain close to 2,000' in elevation and then get to enjoy the fruits of our labor on the way down.

Ride Rating: Intermediate; Endurance Rating E3.5, Technical Rating T3 (to see rating descriptions, click "More" tab above and select "Files") 24 miles should be about 2.5-3 hours

      I am so sorry I missed this ride and I WAS home doing stuff. I simply lost track of time working out my Vizsla afterwards ...

    Thanks for coming out for a stellar evening on Mrazek, everyone. What a fantastic group to be with for this picture perfect out-and-back. The post ride meal was also a winner!

    Probably more fun than we should be allowed to have on a Tuesday! Thanks, Siobhan, for a wonderful ride. Great group and tasty dinner afterwards. Congratulations Pat...the only rider who cleared the "stair-step, drop-off, climbing left switchback." Long live the Terrific Tuesday MTB Rides!

    I've only been mtb riding a few times but have been a road cyclist for a long time. It would be my first ride on Mrazek Trail. Hope to have fun, meet nice people.

      Hey there, Jack! If you enjoy a bit of a climb, Mrazek will be a joy for you; however, please note there are a few slightly technical rocky sections.

      July 16, 2013

    • Jack B.

      Thanks Siobhan, I'll find it and will work at overcoming the technical hot spots. Jack

    Hmmmm, looks like we'll be finishing around dinner time! Anyone interested in nosh afterwards? Kebaba....Spork....or? Good topic for the turn-around point....

      I'm so torn between food and trying to race over to catch the tail end of the CCC prologue at Tetherow. Decisions, decisions. Food will probably win out - always does :P

    I will meet you at the uphill rocks or at the little green structure. I have one rocky switchback I can't session uphill yet so I want to do repeats until I clean it :o) or perhaps give up :o( and ride on.

    Can we as a group get insurance paid for by BACE through yearly membership fees? I will find out more about it from my riding with SBC (Stocton Bicyvle Club) in the next few days. Single dues were
    $ 15.00 and Families $ 25.00 yearly including a free yearly picknick/bbq and free yearly very nice dinner. Both events were always preceded by a ride. For those who are involved in planning for BACE, please let me know your thoughts and then I'll proceed.
