Knobby Wednesday - Beginner Ride


*Note start time 5:30

Overland Loop is all singletrack, all the time. Some fun "whoopdies" and some "swoops" and probably a "thingamajig" or two! The trail is only about 2 miles long and packs a lot of great beginner (and even some green-blue) level features. We'll loop this trail a few times, and also check out the new Schoolhouse Loop and skills area.

Aerobic Difficulty: 2/10
Technical Difficulty: 3/10

Join the fun on mountain bikes! These Knobby Wednesday entry-level rides for beginner riders will give you a chance to practice your skills, have fun, and be safe riding trails. This is a family-friendly ride with two Ride Guides so nobody will get left behind.
