MTB Ride – Sisters Tie – Advanced Beginner
November 15 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This is a fun and easy mountain bike ride on mostly single track with small sections of double track and Forest service roads. E-bikes are not allowed on this trail.
It’s a gradual uphill to the Indian Ford Campground where we can stop for a snack and a group photo before heading back.
Location: We will meet at Fir Street Park in Sisters at 10:45 am. There are restrooms there.
Ride Level: Advanced Beginner
Length of ride: 14+ miles as we start at Fir St Park and ride about a mile to the trailhead. The trail itself is 6 miles to Indian Ford Campground and 6 back to trailhead.
Terrain: Packed dirt with small sections of gravel on FS roads. The recent rain probably helped with the dust, so conditions should be good.
Pace: 7-9mph with stops to regroup as needed. Please make sure your bike is in good working order and that you can ride 15 miles.
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 11:00am – arrive 15 minutes prior for a pre-ride meeting.
Cancelation Notice: Rain may cancel this ride. Look for an update on Meetup by 8am on the day of the ride.
Also, if you are on the waitlist, check meetup periodically AND on the morning of the ride to see if you were able to get on the ride.
Lunch: We will plan to go to The Barn for lunch afterwards for those interested.
