Daylight is burning but we can still get at least one good loop in on Dwelling - or two if you're really quick. Then we can play around on Mosquito Flats and Mosquito Bite as the sky darkens. Sunset is 6:49 pm.

Please make sure your bike is ready at least the day before our ride. We will start on time at 5:00. If you don't make it on time then catch us on Dwelling. You are welcome to ride at your own pace. If you don't know the trails well (but really, it's a loop) and want to stick with one of us then you definitely can.

MANDATORY $1 donation to SORBA use the trails. There is a box at the trailhead you can put money in on your way to the trails. I'm making this mandatory as there is no reason you can't drop a buck in the box. These trails are amazing.

Parking is free and there are restrooms by the parking lot. There is also a bike wash station with hooks and hoses.

Required Items to Bring:

Helmet. No helmet = no ride

water, gatorade or whatever you like to keep hydrated (important)

Mountain bike 

pump, extra tube (on your bike, not in your car)

Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.

snacks to fuel yourself

sunscreen/bug spray according to the season and weather

appropriate clothing
