Details

Approximately 10 miles with short technical sections, short difficult hills, rocks, tree roots and dirt. Ride should be about 2 hours (or less, depends on socializing along the way) with periodic re-groupings. Meet at 7:30 AM in the 5% boat launch parking lot...take a right at stop sign after ranger kiosk then right at next stop sign. Look for red SUV or grey Explorer with bikes. If you don't have a parking pass, you can park at the CVS parking lot or the dirt parking lot under the cell towers on the left side of Douglas near the park and then ride down Douglas Blvd to the park entrance and then right to cross the street to hit the dirt. We generally ride a lollipop - out to Twin Rocks, up to the benches (or the Blue Pipe is an option too), down the back side to Beeks Byte (the lower parking lot), out to Doton's Point and then circle back around to the cars. Helmets are required. Please bring a bike in good working condition, water, a spare tube (not a patch kit), a snack (if you want), sunscreen, bug repellent and Technu (lots of poison oak out there). Any questions, please contact Nate or Terry [masked]).
