This weekend’s ride is a go. The weather looks to be cooperating and most of the snow should be melted off the trail by then.
Ride description: The first two miles of the ride will be on a double track that will provide a good warm-up and an opportunity to socialize before hitting the singletrack. To give you an idea of the level of difficulty, this trail is a little more challenging than the Centennial Park loop. I hope that helps.
Total mileage will be about twelve, with 1200-1300′ of elevation gain. Depending on the makeup of the group we could extend the ride and add another loop. The pace of this ride should be early season casual, but if there is too big of an ability level gap we’ll split into two groups.
When: Sunday, February 17. 10:30am
Getting there: On Highway 50, approximately ten miles east of the Dayton Valley Road (stoplight), there will be a dirt road heading north (just beyond Chaves Rd. If you’ve crested the hill and can see Stagecoach, you’ve gone too far). Turn left, and in about two hundred feet there will be a clearing on the right. Park there.
If you would like to carpool to the trailhead, leave a comment and I’ll make the appropriate arrangements.
