WHO

Kyle's Bikes

Recap/Results

Fun Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night MTB Ride in the snow! It got a little icy along the creek, but was mostly good overall.

Looks like it will be cold all week, which will be good for trail conditions next Wednesday. But you might want to stop by the store for pogies, boots, base layers, and gloves before then!

Description

Mountain Biking

Distance - About 8 or 9 miles

UPDATE (Wed 1:00 p.m.): Yay! The snow it still here and the weather is good. Meet in the Sycamore Trail north gravel lot, ready to roll out at 7:45 p.m. 


UPDATE (Mon): Hopefully, the trail will be in good shape for the 7:45 p.m. mountain bike ride. It even seems likely! — But if it is not, we have a backup plan. We will make the go/no-go decision on mountain biking by 2:00 p.m. that day. If the answer is no-go, we will give a go/no-go report by 5:00 p.m. on a gravel/HTT ride. The gravel/HTT ride, if it happens, would leave Firetrucker at 6:00 p.m. — Be ready!

Kyle loves mountain biking. And mountain biking is fun. So for the fall and winter, the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night Ride is a mountain bike ride on Sycamore Trail!


Meet us at the trail. The "north gravel lot" is off 66th Avenue, just west of the river and east of the Johnston Soccer Fields. If the gravel lot is full, you can park in the paved Neal Smith Trail lot on the east side of the river and ride the new protected bike/ped trail on the bridge.


Gather at 7:30 p.m. We will roll out at 7:45.


The pace will vary depending on who shows up. We may split into smaller groups if the group is large or there is a significant difference in paces. We vary the route a little each time, but regardless of route, we regroup at the following points:

  1. Double Track (by the gravel pit)
  2. Fish Camp (confluence of Beaver Creek and Des Moines River)
  3. Turnaround (the paved Trestle to Trestle Trail)
  4. Fish Camp
  5. Double Track

If you've not ridden at Sycamore before and are concerned about getting lost, find Katherine, Kyer, or Kyle before the ride and let them know. We can find you a buddy. :-) We don't want to lose anyone!


BRING LIGHTS. Running into things is *not* fun.


We do not ride wet trails. Nor during blizzards. Watch our Facebook page carefully for updates.
