THURSDAY NIGHT GROUP RIDES

Thursday is group ride night. Danny Kelly, the man, the myth, the legend has been doing this for years. Danny has more than 20+ years of biking, competitions, and leading group rides. From novice mountain bikes to experts on two wheels, the group rides have something for every mountain biker!

Bikes must be in working condition, and ready to ride on mountain bike trails. If you are unsure have your bike checked out by one of the awesome local bike shops in town! Each rider must have a helmet, water, storage and extra tubes for their bike. The location of the rides will be updated on this page and unless we have bad weather you can count on the ride taking place. Locations and meeting points vary so check in regularly to find out where and when.  Wanna ride? 

Attention Riders! We love dogs, however because of the size of our group, please leave you four legged loved ones at home for the Thursday group ride.

Special Notes for Ride

This is a dirt ride! Bring all gear and be prepared for hills and loose terrain. Bring a light in case you come out in the dark. Be prepared to get wet as some of this loop may have some mud. We are riding in the areas of wildlife so prepare as necessary. We will generally have two loops that you can choose from; one being more challenging than the other. If you can go you won't be disappointed. Also, when parking, keep in mind other vehicles. If you are first to arrive pull all the way in to leave room behind. Riders under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult.  Thanks!!

SAFETY TIPS

Gear Up
Always wear a helmet and any other appropriate safety equipment for the riding conditions.

Never Ride Beyond Your Abilities
There is no shame in walking sections of the trail you don't feel confident enough to ride, and don't let anybody tell you otherwise.

Use Appropriate Equipment for the Terrain
Some bikes are better for different situations. Just because you can see tire tracks, doesn't mean you can ride it with your bike.

Keep Your Speed In Check
Always keep your speed at a level that will allow you to adjust to any unforeseen obstacles or changes in trail conditions.

Know The Trail
Never push the limits on a trail you are not familiar with. You need to get to know the trail you are riding at slower speeds before you can ride it like the trails you're used to.

Slow Down for Blind Corners
You never know what or who is around a corner when you can't see past it.

Stop and Look
Stop and look at sections of the trail that look like they may pose a challenge before you ride them.

Plan on the Crash
Always look at the consequences of crashing in a particular section or on a particular stunt before trying to ride through it. Sometimes a section can look easy to ride but can have deadly consequences to a crash.

Start Small, Go Big
Work your way up to obstacles and stunts. Find ways to practice moves in less difficult and dangerous situations or at lower speeds before committing yourself to something more dangerous.

Play It Smart
If you think what you are doing is not the smartest, you are probably right. Think about what you are doing and trust your instincts.

Be Wildlife Aware
We ride in the wilderness with all that call it home. Be on the lookout for any that could do you harm and carry your bear spray.
