Join us for a casual beginner mountain bike ride! We’ll meet at Carbon Canyon Regional Park at 4442 Carbon Canyon Road in Brea on Sunday at 8:00am. We’ll ride 10-15 miles (until we get tired). When you get to the park gate you’ll need to pay a $3 to enter (they accept cash and credit/debit cards). After you go through the gate you can turn right or left; you will turn left and proceed to the end of the parking lot & I’ll be parked there in a gray Dodge Journey with a bike rack on my hitch. If you have any questions give me a call on my cell at[masked]-3842. We’ll actually be mountain biking in Chino Hills State Park which is adjacent to Carbon Canyon Regional Park, but it’s easier to park at Carbon Canyon.
Emphasis: exercise, saddle time, off-road
Levels: 10-12 average mph
Type of bike: mountain
Ride Difficulty Rating: The climb on the way out is a mild grade, and the way back is all downhill for a nice cool down before you get back to your car. This is a good ride for beginner mountain bikers.
What to bring: All IEWC are required to wear helmets. Bring a water bottle, spare tubes, pump, change, and/or snack. After the ride we’ll likely catch a meal!
PLEASE NOTE: The time of the ride shown above is the actual departure time. Please allow time for bicycle assembly and inspection, filling of water bottles, inflating tires, etc. prior to departure.
