AMBA Ride Levels/Ratings
Join the ride that's best suited for you. If you're unsure, it's always best to start conservative. The Group Ride Leader has the right to not allow you on a ride above your skill level and has the right to turn you around to go back to the trailhead for your safety and the good of the group. Please assess your skill level by joining a lower level group first.
A - Easy/Beginner - Low technical features, frequent breaks, generally less than 1 hour duration.
B - Moderate/Intermediate - Moderate fitness, intermittent technical features, anything advanced can be walked.
C - Skilled/Advanced - Advanced technical and/or high pace. High fitness level required.
D - Expert - You know if you're an expert!
