This intermediate level ride is a great mid-week tonic. Ride at your own pace and we’ll regroup at intersections. We finish every ride by gathering at a local establishment for food and good cheer. Explore trails that are new to you and find a new riding buddy or two. Join the fun!

Our evening rides start with daylight but you will be finishing in the dark so please bring an adequate light system. One handlebar light is sufficient but an additional helmet light is a good idea.

This week we will be riding the Dirty Bismark loop at Marshall Mesa, a beginner/intermediate riding area. There is some moderate climbing and a few rocky sections.

Aerobic Difficulty: 4/10
Technical Difficulty: 4/10
