Event Information

Description

I will be leading an all-levels mountain biking trip to Quarry Ridge this Thursday. Quarry Ridge is about 5 miles away, and it usually takes about 30 minutes to get there on a mountain bike. All skill levels welcome, and Hoofers has helmets and some dope mountain bikes making this the perfect opportunity to try out the sport!

Quarry Ridge is an actual trail system, meaning it has a variety of singletrack trails ranging from beginner to expert, so the ability to ride a bike comfortably is a must, with basic skills like shifting, braking, and riding over and off small curbs. In addition to basic riding ability, you should be comfortable in your ability to bike up to 15 miles in a 5 hour period. If you have these skills, you have what it takes to go on your first mountain biking trip!

What you should bring:

  • At least 1.5L of water (aka 2 water bottles)
  • Snacks and possible a small lunch (for some extra calories on the ride)
  • Something to carry these items!
  • Clothing (Long socks, athletic shirt and shorts, light gloves if you have them, shoes with a flat bottom and strong sole/toe protection work best)
  • If you have your own bike, let me know so I can open the trip to more participants

Logistics:

  • Meet at the boathouse at the time indicated (right next to the Mendota Lounge where we have our weekly meetings)
  • Shred trails for 2-3 hours
  • Return by the time indicated 

Covid Policy

  • We will be outside and spread out the entire time
  • Bring a mask for the short period of time where we will be grabbing bikes and putting them away in the boathouse
  • Don't come if you feel unwell

 

If you have any questions, please reach out to me! (ultimatefoye@gmail.com)

Happy Trails,

-Joe Foye
