Details

This weeks ride will be on Tues for 2 reasons:
1. Tues is an even day so we can ride down Enchanted Forest
2. The presidential debate is Wed and a portion of I25 is closed starting at 5pm on Wed.
So.... We will meet at the lower Apex lot at 5:30 and quickly get on the trail by 5:40 so we can have enough time for a loop.
Based on the following rating scale, this will be a difficult (level 4) physical and technical ride.
This rating system has 2 components: 1. A physical rating 1-5 and a technical rating 1-5. This scale is still in the works and is open to feedback by the way. Mountain bike meetup group rating scale:
