We had a lot of fun last time, let's do it again.
We will NOT be riding the entire park. I got to strap a heavy ramp to my back. As a rule for this group all Jump sessions have to be labeled as an advanced ride. Let's just have where you can learn to jump, sharpen your technique, or just build confidence. I have multiple ramps available. Pictured is the green beginner ramp. I also use a yellow one that is twice the height.
If I have a volunteer for someone to carry an extra 10lbs on their back, we can bring multiple ramps.
PROTECTIVE GEAR HIGHLY RECOMMENEDED
Lederhosen and Dirndls optional.
You're welcome to start earlier or later.
Main group rolling at 5:15.
I'll bring a grill.
You should be able to ride 10 miles and climb 1,500 feet in less than two hours.
Hardtail, full suss, singlespeed, and gravel friendly.
Don't forget Oktoberfest snacks and beverages to share.
If you have camping gear, please bring a plate, cup and utensils.

Estimated at 13-16 miles and[masked] of elevation climb in total. Depends if double loop of Enchanted. Easy pace ride. We’ll regroup at the climbs and intersections.
Face coverings are strongly recommended.
The more technical section of Enchanted Loop can be repeated for those wanting.
ABOUT THE TRAIL...
Our normal route includes Enchanted Loop (technical downhill items), Old Cabin (mix of technical up and down), and possible Zane Gray (some rocks and winding trail). Typical features you can expect include rocks, roots and some occasional drops. If you are not comfortable with roots, drops or other items it is possible to walk around those obstacles but Wilder Ranch is a great place to practice your technical skills.
Meet at 8:00 am. Tires roll @8:15am
DUAL MEETUP W/SBMBG
Here's a video showing highlights:
ABOUT THE RIDE…
We’ll start at the Wilder Ranch Pay lot. I encourage everyone who can afford to do so to pay for parking and support Wilder Ranch, but you can park out by the road and save $10 if you need to. Tires roll @8:15am
NOW THE NITTY GRITTY...
West Coast Mountain Bikers is a group riding community. We don't encourage individuals to come out to our rides that want to do their own ride five minutes after starting with us. We start together and stick together. If new to our group, please take the time to read our Ride Rating Guide Here
All of our rides require a helmet and properly maintained mountain bike.
Riders should be sure to read the description of the ride fully prior to their RSVP. Rides will vary by location and organizer, so be sure to sign up for rides that are appropriate for your skill and fitness level. If unsure if an event is appropriate, contact the event host prior to the event. If you have an existing medical condition please consult your doctor prior to joining an event.
Meetup.com and West Coast Mountain Bikers do not allow minors to attend events. We will occasionally make exceptions, so long as the parent is also in attendance.
The event host and organizers ultimately have the last call on who can and cannot attend a particular event. When a members safety is concerned we will always err on the side of caution.
If you have any questions, related to the group, or our events feel free to email our Organizer, David Butler, at [masked]
