No ride if it's raining or the trails are wet!, but the thunderstorms on the forecast will most likely happen in the PM. We will start 10 mins after the posted time, but please try to be on time :)

Pace: BEGINNER, appropriate for beginner riders (not racers, impatient riders lol, and speed demons). We will wait often for riders to catch up, maybe take a 5-10min break half way, and even have a photo shoot! hehe.

Help is much appreciated! (e.g. Sweeping). We will probably be out there for 2 hours or so, so bring plenty of water for the heat!.

Trail Description: Rosaryville is an excellent mountain biking with a trail of about 9 miles or so in length. It consists of a lot of tight twisty single track with some short steep hills. There are beautiful overlooks, awesome flora and fauna, large open fields. The trails offer something for all levels, but tend toward moderate speed single track, with moderate climbs, and most of the trail is under the cool canopy of mature hardwoods. Trails are not crowded, but keep a close eye out for the occasional equestrian rider or hiker. Skill Level 5–6 (see http://www.sacredrides.com/skill-and-fitness-ratings).

Directions: We are meeting in the lot where the restrooms are. Pulling into the park you'll see one parking lot, but keep going, you'll eventually come to a fork, turn right at the fork, which will lead to another lot. That's where we'll be, look for pepper white mini.

What to bring:

Helmet (no helmet, no ride)
Mountain Bike (hybrid bikes are usually sketchy on trails)
Ice cold Water
Multi-Tool (although you can borrow one)
Patch Kit
Extra Tube (Make sure the valve is the same as your bike)
