Picnic Day Mt Bike Ride Phil’s Trailhead
September 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Join me in the morning for a Bend Bella Mountain Bike Pre-Picnic Ride before we head over to our annual Bella Picnic event. We will meet at Phil’s Trail Head, ready to roll by 9:00 a.m. The route will start on Bens Trail then climb to Bens/Voodoo intersection. We’ll descend down Kents to KGB then we will ride up a short elevation on KGB and descend on the express trail to the Phoenix. We will head down Phil’s to the trail head. The route is 9.6 miles and 670 ft of elevation. This may take 1.5 to 2 hours depending on riders and stops. All trails are blue. There are a few rocky and/or steeper sections that can be easily walked. Generally, we will ride at an advanced beginner pace, stopping at intersections to regroup.
***You MUST sign up to go on this ride. After you press ATTEND, be sure to fill out the “Complete Your RSVP” form with your cell number and Emergency Contact Information, then SUBMIT. If needed, please cancel at least 24 hours prior to the ride so that anyone on the wait list can attend.
