Friday Night Ride at Rosaryville

January 13 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Friday night rides - starting at 8 pm

Contact:  Matt Dustin -Mdustin@BikeDoctor.com

Gather at 8:00 in Rosaryville’s Fred Eskew parking area – at 8:15 pm we will be on our bikes pedaling to the trail head.

HOW: Please RSVP so the ride leaders don’t end up standing around in a freezing cold parking lot, at night, waiting to see if anybody shows up.

TERRAIN: Intermediate. There are exposed roots, log crossings, some drop offs, and some climbs that may be challenging to beginning riders.

PACE: Generally the pace is moderate although we do stop/slow down at various points along the ride to keep the group together.

If the group is willing and everybody is feeling good the pace could lean towards moderate/fast.

If there are enough people and a willing ride leader and sweep who know the trail well a more casual ride could occur also.
Optional 2nd lap – need at least 3 riders, no solo riding.

REQUIREMENTS: Bike in working condition, helmet, working & charged lights – not a rinky-dink commuter light, but a real light that allows you to see several feet in front of you. Dress for the weather. Please make sure you eat well and bring snacks and water; cold weather riding can really use up your energy and bonking in the woods, at night, when you are cold is no fun.
