Description of Ride: This is a Bella favorite ride. The trail is beautiful and much of it next to the river. We will ride from Dillon Falls to Sunriver (but will not go into Sunriver) and return.

This ride is for Advanced Beginners looking for more distance and some short hills and some technical. We will head up river toward Benham Falls, after we reach the falls we will ride to the bridge over the river and cross. Here the leader will guide the group up the paved bike path to sunriver. The second option is to stay on the trail to Sunriver for those interested on staying on the dirt trail.

When we get to the end of the trail, we will take a short break before we begin our return trip.This ride should take about 2.5 hours.

You can see details of the ride here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/8219985. This ride is approximately 13 miles with elevation gain/loss of 500 feet.

This ride is for advanced beginner or better riders – ones who are gaining experience with longer distances with some elevation gain and single-track trails with minimally technical terrain such as small rocks and/or tree roots. The rider should be comfortable changing from easy to moderate technical terrain and short steep uphill climbs and downhill descents with obstacles.

All riders have an obligation to the ride coordinator to let her know if they are leaving the ride. Bella rides are “no drop” rides. No one will get left behind unless they choose to cut a ride short, want to go faster than the group or take a different route. When you leave the group, you are on your own.
