Recap/Results

Six hardy riders showed up for the Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night MTB Ride last night! 20-something degrees and the ground was frozen solid. Exploring Sycamore in the dark is whole lot of fun. Bright, shiny eyes staring at us belonged to a deer.

Description

Mountain Biking

Distance - About 8 or 9 miles

UPDATE (Wed 11/28 2:10 p.m.): Yay! It's very cold out and the ground is frozen! This means tonights Kyle's Bikes Wednesday Night MTB Ride is on!


UPDATE (Mon 11/26):  How optimistic do we want to be about the forecast? If it is sunny on Wednesday, 32°F will be warm enough to melt the trails and make them muddy. But, if it doesn't get that warm or if it stays cloudy, we could be fine. Check here for updates, or participate on our discussion on Facebook.

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

*There is always an option for those who want to to take the paved trail down to South Syc. We can chat about it during the regroup. Due to time crunch for most on a weeknight, the main group heads back north.


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.
