This is the first night ride of 2020. Holidays are over, hopefully you got some cool bike gear, but we won’t be able to see it because it is dark. Routine should be down by now for the night rides, out of the park before 8PM, need waivers if have not done so already and you need to sign in before the ride.
Here is the link for the waivers, please fill out and bring with you.
Time: Meet at 5:45pm, ride by 6:00pm.
Type of ride: All skills, social night ride
Speed: 5 – 12 mph
Distance: Depends on group, between 6 – 12 miles or less
Time spent riding: approx. 1.5 hours
Please park in the back of the boat rental lot. We’ll meet in the lot close to the restrooms to avoid clogging up the parking lot entrance.
Difficulty: Lake Crabtree is one of the easiest and fun trails to ride with ride-arounds for all obstacles. All riders are welcome, but I would recommend that you are comfortable riding Crabtree in the daylight before you attempt this ride.
Details: No-drop ride for all riders, we will split into groups per experience /speed/ skill level. This ride is for all levels and if this is your first time I will make sure there is a group that will suit your comfort level. Lake Crabtree County Park is a great location for beginners. Expect easy to slightly moderate elevation changes. All trail obstacles have ride a rounds. Pace will be dependent on the experience and skill levels of the attendees.
You must wear a helmet while riding on the trails. Make sure you have plenty of water. Of course you will need a light, helmet/handlebar or both. It doesn’t have to be expense and you can ask more experience riders or on forums for recommendations.
