Weekly Thursday NO DROP MTB group ride Gelterswoog 2013 season!

Post by eurotrash on Fri Mar 29, 2013 11:10 am

(moderator note-  started new thread for 2013.  Please continue to post your status each week!)


It's that time of year again. Dust off the MTB and get out and ride.
Start time is 1800
The Thursday group ride is a no drop ride. This means the slowest rider sets the pace and you will not get left behind. This ride takes place every Thursday. Although, once in a while the ride will fall through so check the forum first and post that you plan to be there if you are coming. The purpose of this ride is to get out with the other club members and have a good time, and introduce new members to the trails in the area. The meeting place is the Gelterswoog parking lot. This is the sign as seen from B270.

This ride consist of a mix of singletrack descents and climbs but nothing too technical, and a few fire road climbs are also included. The ride is usually around 25km long with 450 meters of vertical gain. The ride takes around 2 hours give or take depending on the size and riding level of the group.

Some pics of the trails so you know what to expect.

As jacked up as I was, I think it is possible that you did catch it from just talking to me.

Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Forgot to mention the Single Track just past the Rock Garden is closed for Logging. We went beyond the red tape yesterday and the logging hasn't started yet but I have a feeling this won't be the case next week Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven Like a Star @ heaven

Ok, I only live about 6 minutes south of there, and it's pretty wet and actively drizzling all over. Saturday is on though, rain or shine for me.

Awesome Ride tonight!!! Turns out the red tape was gone and no logging has taken place so the Single Track past the Rock Garden is totally ride able...
