Meet at Chuck Heinrich Park - $5.00 entrance fee
Start: 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
Length: 10 + miles/ 3-4 hours
*Difficulty level: Intermediate. Trail starts with a hike-a-bike up the dam, then a continuous gradual climb for about 2 miles up old Tin Mine Road, to Blue Moon, down Mad Cow to Tu Madre, to the road back to round house and back out Lazy Cow. There will be some great down hill sections, a couple of intense climbs, followed by fun, flowy single track. You’ll get a workout, but ride out with smiles and wanting more!
BRING: functional mountain bike, cycling helmet, drinking water and eye protection (sunglasses). We highly recommend that each participant also bring flat repair materials (extra inner tube, plastic tire levers, handheld bicycle pump, etc.), snacks, cycling gloves, cycling shorts, sunscreen, and a backpack or hydration pack (i.e. Camelbak).
