Season Opening Week: Peterson Ridge MTB
April 15, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Organizers Susanita (202) 413-2693 and Kelly Ann O’Neil (928)363-0121.
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.
Plan to meet at 9:45, ready to roll by 10:00. We will meet at the new and improved Peterson Ridge Trailhead parking lot that now includes restrooms. Peterson Ridge Trail is a well maintained single track, crossing forest roads, and dry creek beds strewn with rounded cobble. The trail is constructed of west and east legs, with connector trails in between, like a ladder with rungs. The intersections are well marked with numbered posts that correspond with the trail map. The PTR West posts are numbered with Odd numbers; the PTR East posts are numbered with Even numbers.
We will ride up PRT West to the lookout. From there we can decide how much further we want to go. We’ll cross over the connector trail we chose and start back down PRT East to the start. This is an Advanced/Beginner ride. We will take the trails that are less technical when possible. Route length will be adjusted according to the ability of the group, 12-15 miles, and we will go at a conversational pace.
