Harris Lake NO DROP Beginner/Casual Ride

August 15 @ 9:15 am - 12:15 pm

This will be a NO DROP ride for beginners and those who just like to ride casually without being dropped.
For anyone who may not know what no drop means… it means that no one will be left behind or alone because they can not ride fast enough to keep up.

****ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME****
*New to mountain biking, no clue where to begin? Never been on a trail before but ya got a mountain bike and want to try?
This is the ride for you.
*Want to meet people to ride with but intimidated by group rides?
This is the ride for you.
*Love rides that are just for fun, no expectations or judgments?
This is the ride for you.
*Willing to volunteer to lead/sweep at a group ride, know Harris Lake trails and are willing to do no drop rides?
THIS IS THE RIDE FOR YOU!

We will split into groups depending on the number of riders and the skill levels. I will need group leaders and sweepers. Message me if you are interesting in helping.

For the actual beginner group we will start with the beginner trail (less than a mile) and then after riding that we will make a further plan depending on the group.
We will stop as often as needed for anyone who may need a break.
We will ride the pace necessary for everyone to keep up and enjoy the ride. No rider is TOO NEW OR TOO SLOW so do not let that keep you from joining us.

For the non beginner groups distance and speed will be decided upon by the group at the time of the ride.
ALL GROUPS WILL BE NO DROP and will have a group leader and a sweeper who knows the trail system. For anyone who doesn’t know what a sweeper is… they are the person who rides in the very back making sure no one is left behind.

MOUNTAIN BIKE AND HELMET ARE REQUIRED
NO ONE CAN RIDE WITHOUT A HELMET.
Gloves, water bottle/pack, mini-tool, spare tube, and pump/CO2 highly recommended. (If you are new to the sport and have no idea what some of those things are come anyways. We will help ya learn.)

We will meet at the GRAVEL bike trail parking lot. It’s the first parking lot on the left after entering the park. If the gravel area is full there is over flow parking in the field right by the gravel lot.
