Thursday Evening Social Mountain Bike Ride


July 20, 2017 - 5:30 pm

Indian Hills

 

Although we are starting to get our afternoon monsoons, it’s still rather hot. Let’s continue to go up for a bit of cool by hitting up Parmalee Gulch trailhead which is the upper part of Mt. Falcon.  Grub & beer after at a local haunt dictated by popular demand!  🙂

Here is the BETA:

  • Meet at the upper parking lot for the Mt. Falcon trail located in Indian Hills. See map here.
  • Meet time is 5:30 pm with wheels down at 6:00 pm
  • If you are not a member, a waiver (which can be downloaded from our website) must be signed and returned to us. (remember, you get 2 free intro rides to see if we are a good fit before deciding to join)
  • RSVP is greatly appreciated.

DETAILS:

  • You MUST have a safe helmet no older than 5 years.
  • You MUST have a working bike that has been serviced within the last few months
  • TIRE Pressure should be checked: Good rule of thumb on tire pressure is weight based:
    • For TUBELESS tires: If your weight is between 100 to 120 lbs = 18 to 20 psi
    • Between 125 to 135 lbs = 22 to 25 psi
    • Between 140 to 160lbs = 27 to 32 psi
    • TUBED tires: Add 3 to 5 psi
  • Chains should be lubed (if they haven’t been touched since last winter)
  • BRING WATER – preferably a hydration pack
  • BRING gels, goo, chews, snack to prevent bonking (On day of ride, be sure to be hydrating for most of the day and be sure to have eaten at least 2 – 3 hours before the ride.)
  • Always BRING a wind and/or rain jacket. You just never know if our weather will change while we are out and it’s better to be prepared.
