Season Opening Week – Advanced Beginner Gravel – Water and Lava

April 12, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Spring is here and we are all eager to get out on our bikes! We are not able to have our annual Spring Fling to kick off the riding season but we can have an unofficial opening week with several rides to get everyone excited to get out and ride.

This will be an advanced beginner gravel ride – Water and Lava. 10:00 am roll out – back between 12:30-1:00 pm. This will be an easier version of the Dirty Freehub Water & Lava ride. This ride will be about 20 miles with about 700 feet of elevation gain. It eliminates the section that goes to the Lava Lands visitor center and up Lava Butte. This ride is appropriate for gravel/cross bikes or mountain bikes.

*****Bella rides are “no-drop” rides and no one will be left behind. In consideration of others, we ask that you choose a ride that is close to your skill level based on the description given of the ride.

If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster or slower, or taking a different route, you have an obligation to let the leader know. When you leave the group, you are on your own.

No guests are allowed on this ride. You MUST be a current paid Bella member to attend.
