Warmest day of the year at about 80, but 13 anxious riders showed up. We began with about 6 miles on the scenic lake loop. This interesting ride takes you through campgrounds, over a bridge popular with fishermen and, as it turned out, directly through a disc golf course ("watch for flying discs!"). OK, that was a wrong turn...my bad.
A smaller group then proceeded to the outside loop...about 10 miles. The group broke up a bit, since some of us were getting tired (I was still getting over a cold). All were accounted for however, and I think everyone got enough riding in. Good thing we didn't do the full 200 foot gas-line climb, or I'd still be feeling it...)
Overall, I'd have to say Ft Yargo is well suited for all riding levels, plus the loops are just long enough to give you a physically demanding ride, while leaving your strength to ride another day!
Thanks everyone for coming out!
