Group Ride / Mt Zion / SATURDAY 1/31/15

Post by Robin » Tue Jan 27, 2015 7:51 pm

It's been like for-eva since we have hit this trail! Time to go back!

Carpool /caravan group meet at the Bass Pro shop in Denham Springs. Far left side of the parking lot at 8:15am for 8:30am roll out. It is a good 2 hour drive to Brookhaven so for anyone meeting us at the trailhead - we should arrive by 10:30am-ish.

WHEN: Saturday - January 31st, 2015
WHERE: 1160 Mt. Zion Rd NW, Brookhaven MS (Plug this address into your GPS and it will take you straight there. There is a small sign on the road that says bike trail. Use that drive way. The next one is the owner's driveway to his house)
RIDE DISTANCE: 1 loop = @10 miles
RIDE LEVEL: I'm going to classify this as beginner friendly mainly because there are bail out areas to the outer perimeter 3 mile trail. But there are some heart-pumping granny gearing climbs so be warned! You can not get lost on this trail and everyone just kind of rides it at their own pace. Some will ride only 1 loop, while others will hit it multiple times.

We will grill post ride - so bring something to toss on the grill or a side (chips/salsa/hummus).

What to Bring:
1. NO HELMET - NO RIDE!
2. Water/Gatorade and Protein bars/Gu’s for during the ride
3. Tubes/Air and tools should you need trail side repair.
4. Post ride clothes - though there are NO BATHROOMS here for changing.
5. Couple bucks cash for the drop box.
6. Food Contributions for POST RIDE PICNIC!

Please post up if able to join! (and post your foodage contribution) :D
