Many folks out there in bicycle land have mountain bikes that they use to get around town and ride on the recreational bike paths, but may be leery of trying their skills on real singletrack mountain bike trails.
Two weeks from now, there's a great opportunity for first-timers to get some tips and a gentle introduction to mountain biking. In conjunction with the Cleveland Area Mountain Bike Association (CAMBA), local rider Esther Gates is holding a Beginner's Mountain Bike Ride!
Date: Sunday, May 23, 2010
Time: 1:00 pm
Where: Quail Hollow State Park
Please RSVP to the e-mail address provided on this announcement on the CAMBA web site.
Quail Hollow State Park's mountain bike trail is an easy, beginner-friendly loop about 3.5 miles long. It's perfect for first-timers, with no major uphills or downhills, and a relatively smooth surface with very few rocks, logs, and other obstacles.
