Solid Intermediate MTB at intermediate pace: Peterson Ridge, Sisters, OR
April 8 @ 3:45 am - 5:45 am
Plan to meet at 10:45 ready to roll by 11:00am.
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 PRT West posts are numbered with Odd numbers; the PRT East posts are numbered with Even numbers.
This is an Intermediate ride with NOT a lot of stopping other than at all intersections. We will use the basic west and east trails. There will be the occasional rocky section with no shame in walking. We would rather have you ride again the next day then be on the couch for next 6 weeks!! No one will be left behind!
Route to be determined but probably going up the west side and coming down the east … because it’s fun.

Optional: Post-ride lunch at The Barn in Sisters 171 E. Main Street or other suggested location.
