Advanced Beginner MTB Ride: Mrazek Out-and-Back

A favorite out-and-back ride for those Advanced Beginners who enjoy a bit of climbing and like the idea of earning your descents ;)

We'll begin at Shevlin Commons (NOT Shevlin Park), cruise along the singletrack before circling around to a doubletrack climb before entering miles upon miles of sweet, winding singletrack.  For a short stretch, we'll dip off the singletrack to navigate around the Two Bulls fire burn area.  

Nitty gritty details about the ride:

• Total mileage will be approximately 15.3 miles 

• Elevation gain will be approximately 1,135 ft.  

• Average speeds will likely be between 8-9.5

• Ride time will likely be[masked] hours but, that will totally depend on the number of stops and/or rests needed along the way

• Ride Rating: Advanced Beginner; Endurance Rating E3.5, Technical Rating T3 

We'll climb up to the little green shed before reversing  our course for a fun, flowy descent back to the park.
