Metolious Perserve Larch Tree MTB Ride
October 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join Nancy and Kelly for a repeat of the popular ride to take in the beautiful Larch Trees. We will ride three loops through the preserve on double and single track. Ebikes are not allowed in the preserve.
Location: Meet at the Lake Creek Trailhead on Metolius/Camp Sherman Rd.
Ride Level: This is Advanced Beginner/leisure pace.
Length of ride: 11.8 miles, 465′ elevation gain.
Terrain: Packed dirt/ gravel.
Pace: 6-9mph with stops at intersections. There are many turns, and it’s easy to get lost, so we need to stay together.
For safety: Helmet is required, flat tire repair kit and a bell are recommended.
Bella rides are “no drop” rides and no one will be left behind.
If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster, or taking a different route you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own.
Be Ready to Roll at 11:00 am – arrive 15 minutes prior for a pre-ride meeting.
Cancelation Notice: Rain/Air Quality of 100 or above may cancel this ride. Look for an update on Meetup before heading out to the trailhead.
Lunch: We will plan to go to lunch afterwards for those interested.
Contact: Nancy Whitlatch @(925)383-3481 or Kelly O’Neil @(928)363-0121 if you have any questions.
