Demo Forest Endurance ride... Slower paced Int ride

Demo Forest

 

Enduro Ride

 

We're heading out to the Demo yet again.  This is going to be my usual two downhill run ride.  Starting out from the lot at Hihn's Mill and Highland we'll climb out on the road up to the ridge.  Then we'll ride to Sawpit for our first down hill run.  After a nice relaxing (long and lame) climb back up to the top we'll hit Braille trail.  Then it's just a climb back up to the cars.

 

This ride isn't for beginners, it would be a difficult ride for even Adv. Beginners.  We're not going to be pushing up the climbs very fast, in fact I'd like to keep the group small enough that we can all just chill together and chat about the previous downhill.  That being said the downhills trails we're taking have lots of features and steep rocky/loose sections.  If you've never ridden demo before this is probably not the best ride to try it on.  If you've ridden with the group a bunch and aren't sure if you're ready for this ride just shoot me a message and I'll be more than happy to discuss it with you further.

 

Expect the ride to last no less than 3 hours, but more than likely more.  We're not racing up the hills so it'll probably be a longish day... just like I like them.

 

We'll see you out there on the trails,

Dave.

    Well I'm hoping I can get this rear hub sorted out before ride time... It's not looking good.

    I'm going to post a Dirt Riders ride. The goal is to start and finish w/ the SJMTB group, but put up more miles in between. We'll do 3 Los to their 2. If you are a strong rider. Please move to the Dirt Riders ride to make room for other riders.

    I'd like to know who is coming out for this ride that wants a mellower pace. I know of a few that I would think do, but I don't want to make assumptions. Also I'm opening the ride up to all that are waiting.

      I'm not going to hammer or even remotely come close to going fast on this ride. It's posted as a slower paced ride and that's what it will stay. I know many of you and also know you to be fast riders. So I'm going to ask you all this. Stick together until we reach the top of Sawpit at least. Then if you want to jam down by all means do so. After that you can either take off as separate group or wait for us to start the climb up to the second loop. Thanks for understanding.

    ok here's the update for everyone since demo seems to be really popular lately. I'm going to open the ride up to the rest of the wait list, but only if I have a fast group leader volunteer. I've ridden with lots of you before and feel comfortable with lots of you helping out to lead rides. If you want to lead the faster cats let me know. I'm sticking with the slower newer to demo folks on this one.

      I think it got popular only because we haven't been hosting there much this season.
