Sister’s Tie- Beginner Mt Bike Ride
June 18, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Event Organizer: Shannon Bergstedt
This is a great beginner mountain bike ride with good single track, no rocks or ledges. The ride is an out and back with little elevation gain. We will ride to Indian Ford Campground, take a break and return the way we came. Although this is a beginner ride, you must be able to ride 15 miles easily. We will keep a moderate pace and regroup at all intersections. Please give priority to Bellas that have never done this ride. If you have done the ride and there is still space left on Wed, feel free to sign up.
The ride is 15.5 miles out and back with 180′ of elevation gain.
We will meet promptly at 10:00am at the Fir St Park in Sisters. There are bathrooms there that should be open. It is strongly encouraged that we wear masks at the pre-ride meeting, and please don’t park closely together. Also please keep 6 feet of distance between others whenever we are stopped.
Helmets are required. It’s a good idea to wear bright colors and bring a whistle in case of any problems. We tend to get spread out on the trail. Bring plenty of water and a snack, just in case. Wear layers appropriate for the weather. Please make sure your bike is in good working order.
You MUST sign up to go on this ride. After you press ATTEND, be sure to fill out the “Complete your RSVP” form with the information required, then press the arrow button to submit. Please RSVP and/or cancel in a timely manner.
Rain cancels the ride. Check Meetup by 8:00 am that morning for any updates.
