*Difficulty level: Advanced. Meet at Chuck Heinrich Park. Trail starts with a hike-a-bike up the dam, then a continuous gradual climb for about 2 miles; turn off onto Pole Cat Alley for some fun single track, climbing and introductory technical riding; link up to Blue Moon, Mad Cow and Lazy Cow trails for some good 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).
