Adv Beginner MTB: Peterson Ridge
May 11, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Organizers Kelly O’Neill (928-363-0121) and Michele Briggman.
Plan to meet at 9:45 ready to roll by 10:00. We will meet at the new and improved Peterson Ridge Trailhead parking lot that now includes restrooms. Peterson Ridge Trail is a well maintained single track, crossing forest roads, and dry creek beds strewn with rounded cobble. The trail is constructed of west and east legs, with connector trails in between, like a ladder with rungs. The intersections are well marked with numbered posts that correspond with the trail map. The PRT West posts are numbered with Odd numbers; the PRT East posts are numbered with Even numbers.
This is an Advanced Beginner ride. We will be taking the middle trails when they are available to avoid some rocky sections. We will keep an advanced beginner pace with frequent stops to regroup. This ride is not suitable for beginnners.
No one will be left behind! And please no phone calls on the ride unless it’s an emergency.

There are additional trail maps at the trailhead. You MUST be a current paid Bella member to attend.
One always has the option of leaving the ride and going ahead on one’s own if timing is an issue. Unfortunately for now, the ride is limited to 8 riders due to Covid 19 restrictions. Please be respectful of one another’s personal space while gathering before and after ride and at rest stops. Wear a mask if necessary.
Optional: Post-ride lunch at Three Creeks Brewing Company in Sisters. Outdoor seating available.
