WHAT TO EXPERT:  This is a very fast urban mountain bike ride.  The pace for the road is quick and the trails can be very technical.  It’s a great ride to learn improve your skills but prepared to ride some elements that might feel uncomfortable to new riders.  Trails might have slick areas and since these are not your traditional mountain bike trails, expect a lot of overgrown greenery.  In the end, this is incredibly fun for seasoned riders. It’s also a great way to meet more like minded riders. Then talk about weekend mountain bike plans over beer and pizza.
