*Difficulty level: Beginner – Moderate. Meet at Chuck Heinrich Park. We'll ride down the street for about 3/4 mile where we'll transition on to gravel road leading us 1.5 miles to the Bowen Round House Ranch site; we'll take a break then turn onto Lazy Cow trail for a fun 3 mile section of single-track returning us to the Chuck Heinrich parking lot. There are a few steep dips that we'll stop ahead of to discuss body positioning and technique. Everyone has the option to walk their bike down if they don't feel comfortable riding these sections.
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).
