We always get questions via email or during the ride, if our events are strictly for Team Velosport Members. ABSOLUTELY NOT ! Our rides will be always split into 2 groups. One focus is Beginner / Novice Rider Level with clinics and a “Social Pace” or just for those who have not touched a mountain bike for a while and want to get back into this fantastic sport. The other group is for more experienced riders and it will be a different route with faster pace and less stops. We encourage everyone to spread the word and if you have friends, who want to share the fun, please invite them.
When: Wednesday 08/08/12, roll off sharp at 6:00pm,
Where: Peters Canyon Regional Park,
Parking Lot / Entrance at Canyon View Avenue, Orange CA 92869
We suggest to arrive between 5:30pm and 5:45pm. You should be able to spot us with our Sho-air/Rock N’Road/Team Velosport Jersey’s. We will have a short meeting about safety rules before we take off. Here is a link to a map of Peters Canyon Regional Park http://www.ocparks.com/uploadgraphics/lbpetersv8.pdf
Novice Rider / Social Group:
We will start clockwise on Lake View Trail, then take Gnatcatcher Trail to avoid Red Hill, continue East Ridge View Trail, but cut it a little bit shorter and ride downhill on Scout Hill Trail. Then back on Peters Canyon Trail and finish clockwise with the remaining part of Lake View Trail, which will include a short single trail climb ( it’s okay to push the bike …) but also some rewarding very easy flat single trails.
We will start counter clockwise on Lake View Trail (with extra credit taking cactus point) and some short climbs as a warm up. Then we will attack the famous “Red Hill”. We continue on East Ridge View Trail all the way to the end and go downhill on a fun single track called Eucalyptus Trail. After that it is all flat fire road on Peter’s canyon trail back to the parking lot. Depending on time we can add some more extra credits at the end.
Last but not least, future planned Rides:
08/15 Black Star Canyon
08/22 Aliso Woods and Canyon Regional Park
We always post details for the next ride on Monday’s or send us an email if you would like to get information via email as well.
Looking forward to see everyone
