This ride will begin 10am at the north trail head of Lost Lake (the Primrose Landing Campground). Please meet at Carrs Huffman in Anchorage at 7:30am to carpool to the ride. After meeting at the campground we will carpool to the south trail head and bike back to Primrose. This is one of the most beautiful rides in Alaska. There is plenty of climbing, descending and varied single tract along with views of Resurrection Bay when we are at the apex of the trail. This will be the day after the Lost Lake run so the trail will be brushed back.
Although this is only 16 miles it is a strenuous ride in the Alaskan wilderness, be fit, aware, prepared, bring a lunch and water!
Possible trail-gating after the ride. So bring something to put on the grill and a cold beverage of your choice.
Remember to bring your helmet as they are required. Please leave your gun at home. Also, a parent or guardian must be in attendance for any riders under the age of 18.
