Picnic Ride – Advanced Beginner MTB #2: Phil’s Trail System
June 22 @ 2:15 am - 4:15 am
Picnic MTB Ride starting at Phil’s trailhead. Be READY TO RIDE at 9:15am. We want to be sure we are back to Discovery Park in time to be ready for the picnic at 11:30.
This is a solid advanced beginner paced mountain bike ride from Phil’s trailhead.
We’ll take Marvin’s to the KGB cutoff road. From there to KGB to a short section of Expressway until we reach the ELV intersection. We go on ELV to Ticket-to-Ride North. We’ll ride up Ticket-to-Ride North to Voodoo Child, then Voodoo, then ride the sweet Kent’s downhill back to the trailhead. We should run into the other advanced beginner group as they are going a reverse direction on some of these trails!
The ride is not too technical but has some climbing (mostly green trails with short sections of blue). The route is about 12 miles with approximately 870′ of climbing. We’ll stop to regroup at the intersections. We will plan to average 7-8 MPH to be finished within 2 hours.
