MTB – Faster Advanced Beginner/Intermediate: Peterson Ridge
June 1 @ 3:00 am - 5:00 am
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 a Faster Advanced Beginner / Intermediate ride. We will keep a little faster advanced beginner pace (but still a little slower than the intermediate rides) with brief stops at intersections to regroup. Plan on 8-9 mph average for the whole ride. We will be taking the middle trails when they are available to avoid some rocky sections. This ride is not suitable for beginners or slower advanced beginners. 14 miles and 600′ of climbing.

Optional: We will meet at The Barn after the ride for a beverage and/or lunch.
