We are going to do a car shuttle from the parking lot at the Russian River Campground / parking lot to avoid having to ride on the Sterling HWY and Snug Harbor Road. I have heard there is free parking, but bring some $$ to park right in case there is a fee. The ride will begin at 10 am at the Russian River Campground (mile 52.6 Sterling HWY) in Cooper Landing. We will park cars there and only take a couple vehicles to the trail head on Snug Harbor Road. Meet at Carrs Huffman at 7:30 am to carpool. This is a 22 mile single tract ride from Cooper Lake, past Upper and Lower Russian Lake, and follows the valley of the Russian River to the trail head at the Russian River campground at mile 52.6 of the Sterling Hwy. This is a ride in the Alaskan WILDERNESS, be fit, be aware, be prepared, bring a lunch and water! There is the possibility to see bears and moose on the trail, bear spray would be a good idea. Please, leave the guns at home. Also, when we are finished with the ride we will go for a bite to eat at a local restaurant in Cooper Landing. Maybe also leave a snack or cold beverage in your vehicle, since after the ride we will have to wait for the car shuttle to pick up the vehicles we drove to the start of the ride at the end of Snug Harbor rode. Remember to bring your helmet as they are required. Also, a parent or guardian must be in attendance for any riders under the age of 18.
This ride will begin at 10am at the North trailhead to Johnson’s Pass. Meet at 8:30am at Carrs Huffman to carpool. We will coordinate a key swap at the north trailhead so that we will not have to do a car shuttle. Expect 23 miles of riding and roughly 2,700' of climbing. We'll break into two groups, with each group riding opposite directions for the key swap in the middle. There isn't much difference in elevation between the two directions. This will be great cycling on one of the best single tracts on the Kenai Peninsula. It is hard to time this ride just right for overgrowth of Cows Parsnip/Pushki. If it happens to be a sunny day you might want to plan on having long sleeves and pants / tights in your pack if you have reactions to this plant. This is a ride in the Alaskan WILDERNESS, be fit, be aware, be prepared, bring a lunch and water! There is the possibility to see bear and moose, so bear spray might be a good idea. Don't forget your bug spray. Remember to bring your helmet as they are required. Also, a parent or guardian must be in attendance for any riders under the age of 18. Please, no guns. Be sure to not leave valuables in your car at Carr's or the trailhead.

This ride will begin at 11am at the Crescent Lake trail head. Meet at Carrs Huffman at 8:30am to carpool. From the Sterling Hwy (mile 45) go past the Quartz Creek campground, drive for about 5 miles to the parking lot for Crescent Lake. If carpooling, please be sure to chip in for gas. This is a scenic single tract ride in the beautiful Kenai Mountains. It is a gradual climb to the lake. About 6 miles up and 1,300' of elevation. We will be having lunch on the lake shore or near the bridge. Then a great 6-mile ride back down the trail. The trail is mostly sheltered but it can be breezy at the lake.
