Hoppy Hour Intermediate Mtn bike (Social Ride)

Here's a repeat Hoppy hour ride without the 94 degree heat!

For this Intermediate Hoppy Hour we'll start riding 4.0 miles from the Conklin road turn off at the Tylers Traverse Trailhead.  We begin by riding on the road (ugh!) for a quick and flat 2.4 miles until we reach the StormKing trailheard.  It's a nice, shady,  3.6 miles uphill, singletrack until the intersection with Tiddlywinks.  Another bit of climbing until we finally reach Steve Larson trail.  We gather speed on Steve Larson but are rewarded for our climb when we intersect with Tyler's Traverse.  Its a fast, fun descent back to the car!  Total ride 1100 ft of climbing, 12.2 miles total.  We'll start early so we can finish up and get to Cascades Brewery where we should have a gift certificate waiting for us!  If we are lucky we may even make it to the Brewery in time for happy hour pricing on appetizers and beers.

Please remember that the Hoppy Hour ride is a social ride and the point of the ride is to have fun riding and then to join everyone afterwards for a social hour.  This particular ride is not recommended for cross bikes or for beginning riders.

We ride, we laugh, we drink beer or soda, we have fun.  TGIF

    Super fun ride with a great group. Tyler's Traverse was in unbelievable condition, a fantastic roller-coaster ride. Plus, an excellent post ride meal at Cascade Lakes Brewing Co, who provided a gift certificate in support of BACE. Many thanks to all who attended!

    Sorry I didn't get a reminder like usual through meetup and completely forgot. Which sucks because I did Ben's-Helipad, Storm King and back by myself from about 3:15 until 5:00 or so.
    My Bad, hope it was great
