Picnic Ride! – MTB Quickie from Phil’s Trailhead
July 24, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Come join us for a pre-party MTB quickie! Be ready to ride at 9:30am!
***THIS RIDE WILL NOW LEAVE FROM PHIL’S TRAILHEAD PARKING LOT. MEET NEAR THE SIGN WHERE BEN’s, KENT’s, MARVIN’s and PHIL’s begin. From there, we’ll take the unnamed singletrack that parallels the pump track, then on the IPA trail up to MTB where we’ll meander our way to KGB. After riding a bit further, we will hop on a dirt road for a short bit to connect with Ben’s. When we reach Voodoo, we’ll follow that over to Kent’s. We’ll then head down Kent’s for some fun downhill back to the trailhead. Expect to ride 10-12 miles with 600-800 feet of elevation gain. This is a fairly non-technical ride. We will ride at a solid advanced beginner pace and re-group at major intersections.
*** I do not have a current GPX file for this route. Basic route is up unnamed trails from Phil’s trailhead to MTB, unnamed trails to KGB, unnamed singletrack and dirt roads to Ben’s, Ben’s to Voodoo, Voodoo to Kent’s, Kent’s to trailhead. Mileage less than 12 miles, elevation gain less than 800ft.
