What we're about

Utah Mountain Biking! We're a group of mountain bikers of all levels based out of the greater Salt Lake City and Wasatch Back areas. We usually post 1-2 weekly rides, with sometimes 5 or more rides during the summer. Our rides are are broken up in to four levels (novice, beginner, intermediate and advanced) and include casual rides, epic rides, skills days at bike parks, shuttled downhill rides, lift-serviced bike park days, bikepacking and night rides. We also have car camping trips to places further away. After our ride we usually hangout at a restaurant or have beer and snacks at the trailhead.

Jackson Hole and Teton Valley Biking and Camping

Needs a location

Since we'll be up in Pinedale, Jackson isn't that far away. Jackson Hole's bike park should be quieter on a weekday. There's also lots of trails around there. You don't have to be going on the Wind River trip to join this one.

Rides
Sunday: Munger Mountain Trails Trailhead: https://www.trailforks.com/poi/2434/
Monday: Jackson Bike Park ($49 -Bike Park Ticket; $209 -Bike Park Ticket & Rental)
Tuesday: Red Creek Loop: 9.6 miles, 1600 ft vertical, intermediate

Camping
We'll be camping at "dispersed" sites, so bring everything you need, water, tents, food, jackets, firewood. Sunday night I'm planning to camp on North Falls Creek Rd near the Munger Mountain Trailhead.

Tuesday Night ride @ Erick's Trail, Herriman 6/28

Needs a location

The heat is on this week so perfect timing for night riding This ride should be around 9 miles, with about 1300 feet of climbing and 2hrs of riding time.
From the getgo there will be A LOT of climbing, some really steep sections (the start of the ride it's quite steep with little to no time to warm up). This ride is suited for intermediate riders with strong cardio,. Steady pace with enough rests in between to catch breath, snacks or re-group.

The intended route I’m thinking is as follows:
Meet at the Muirwood Picnic area (see comments for drop pin), and start climbing up on Diamond Back Connector (very steep, but short climb) to Erick’s trail…all the way up, loop around and back. There are 2 option for the DH, the classic loop (easier) or HardLick DH trail (more advance)...I'll guess we'll decide once we are there.

Planning to meet by 7:30pm and be rolling at 7:35pm sharp.

The Meetup place is right in a neighborhood so parking is limited.

What do you need for this ride?
-Good Attitude
-Night Riding Lights (mandatory)
-bike and helmet (make sure your tires and bike are in good condition)
-gloves and a light jacket (it might get cold at night)
-water and snacks for the ride.
-spare tube, mini pump, multitool for trail side repairs. The descents on this trail will be fast over often rocky or loose terrain s.o protection pads are highly recommended
-There are few jumps on the mention trails, but you can go around or walk them.
Any questions? Post to the comments section of this event,

Hope to see you there!

P.S. I drive a White Tesla

Trailside Flow Trails, Jumps and Hangout by the Skatepark (All Levels)

Bring your bikes along with food, drinks, skateboards and basketballs. After riding the flow trails, we'll hangout below the bikepark at the tables by the skate park and basketball court.

This event is for all levels from beginner to expert. Trailside is a great place for strong beginners and intermediates looking to build skill and confidence on the bike. If you can't make it at the start time you can find us in the park.

There are skills building areas at Trailside Park that are catered to Beginners, Intermediates, and even Advanced riders. If you have never been it is a good place to become familiar with. There are five downhill flow trails, two pump trails, a dual slalom course and jump lines.
