Let's do a fun advanced-intermediate ride that includes miles of flowy singletrack, some technical sections, a few hike-a-bikes and plenty of smiles. From the parking area, we'll connect to C.O.D. trail and pick our way through the rocks up to Storm King. After crossing Cascade Lakes Hwy to the junction, we head up Funner to Wanoga Sno-Park. After a break, it's a bit more climbing before miles of sweet singletrack (including some recent enhancements by COTA) on Tiddlywinks. TW will deposit us back at the junction, where we pick up Storm King for more fun descent back to Rd 41. A 1.5 mile cool down pedal on Rd 41 will return us to the cars.

We will ride at a moderate pace. Ideal for the advanced-intermediate rider, or the advanced rider more interested in enjoying sweet Central Oregon scenery than moving up the strava rankings.

Afterwards, let's head over to Parrilla for lunch on the patio.
