Details

We'll check out and explore the trails at the Front Range's newest mountain bike trail network- Maryland Mountain. The plan is to ride this trail loop to explore the trail network as it is right now. These trails were built in partership with Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance as well as Colorado Mountain Bike Assocaition so it will be fun to ride some purpose built trails. The trip is rated as "difficult" although it looks like the only difficult section of the ride will be the Hard Money trail at the end of the ride. In press regarding the new trails, riders have been describing the hard money trail as a directional bike trail that is a slight step below in difficulty of the downhill only trail of the sluice trail of Floyd hill (think more flow/jumps & less rock features). Besides that, the trails look like typical XC trails. We'll approach this as a XC type ride and then take our time on or final segment of Hard Money.



Please arrive with your bike in good working order, helmet required & bike gloves strongly encouraged.  For your bike be sure to bring spare tube, pump & bike multi tool to make adjustments to your bike while on the ride.  If you have any questions or are not sure if you're prepared for this ride please reach out to the leader to discuss previous riding experience/skill.



Trip leader has not ridden these trails before so this will be a exploratory ride for the entire group
