Super Easy MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE: Ticket to Ride Loop
June 30, 2020 @ 8:45 am - 10:45 am
Organizer: Laury Riley
I am offering this ride twice in one day. The second ride will begin at 10:45am. If you do not get on this first ride, watch for the 2nd announcement to be posted. (There will be a delay before I can post the 2nd ride.) NOTE: If you are on the wait list for this ride, you will NOT automatically be put on the 2nd ride. The 2 rides are totally separate. Sorry but there is no way to connect them.
This ride is for women who want to mountain bike cautiously and at a slower pace. There is some climbing on this ride but we will do it in stages with rest breaks. The route is mostly rock-free but there are a few places where we will walk over rocks or go around them. The ride is about 6 miles long and has some fun, swoopy, flat sections.
Please do not sign up for this ride if you are a stronger rider. The group size is limited to 6 people, myself included.
Please meet at the Cascade Lakes Welcome Station on Century Drive, 5 miles up the road to Mt Bachelor, on the right. We will gather promptly at 8:45am for a brief pre-ride meeting. Please bring a mask to wear during this meeting. Please arrive in time to get yourself and your bike ready to ride. There is a restroom in the parking lot.
Here is the RWGPS info for this ride:
Please RSVP if you plan to attend. Also, be sure to fill out the “Complete Your RSVP” form with the information required, then press the arrow key to submit. If you prefer, you can send a private message to Laury on Meetup with this info.
Please cancel in a timely manner if your plans change so that someone on the wait list can take your place.
Helmets are required. It’s a good idea to wear bright colors and bring a whistle in case of any problems. Bring plenty of water and a snack, just in case. Wear layers that can be shed as it warms up.
Rain cancels the ride. Check Meetup by 7:30 am on the morning of the ride for any updates.
*****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 of the ride.
If you choose to leave the group by going significantly faster, 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. You must be a current paid Bella member to go on this ride.
