Easy Rider MTN Bike Ride – La Pine State Park

When: Monday, June 19th at 9:00 AM

Where: We will meet and car pool to ‘LaPine State Park Day Use Area’. Meet in Subway parking lot off of Baker Road (map) at 9:00am.

Description of Ride: Trail is beautiful and much of it next to the river. Most is flat with some uphill, some obstacles such as downed trees that have been cut to ride through and some narrow single track. Technically easy. There are 3 riding loops at the Park. We will ride: the Fall River Loop: 4.75 miles, the Deschutes Loop: 3.5 miles and the Cougar Woods loop: 3 1/8 miles for a total of approximately 12 miles. There is a chance that one loop will still have lots of blown-down
trees so the route may need to be adjusted accordingly.

You can see details of the ride here: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/7579828. This ride takes approximately 3 hours (depending on how often we stop).If you want to stop after the Fall River Loop we will be back at the parking area and you can leave the ride at that time.

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.
