Weather Note: This ride may be changed to a different location if we have rain.
Please note, this ride is for experienced mountain bike riders (no prior racing experience required). You should be able to ride 10+ miles, or 2+ hours on intermediate level terrain (steep climbs and descents, rocks, roots, narrow single track, and a bit of climbing).
El Corte de Madera Open Space Preserve (a.k.a. Skeggs) - We will be meeting at the parking lot at Skeggs point (on Skyline Blvd. 1.7 miles south of Kings Mountain Road). Route - Sierra Morena > Bear Gulch > Blue Blossom > Spring Board > Gordon Mill > Crossover > Crosscut > Timberview > Manzanita > Tafoni. There are options to both extend and shorten the ride as the group determines. Plan for about 10+ miles and 2+ hours of super fun riding! :)
