Charlottesville is hilly, but I crave a truly mountainous route. So I’ve contrived a route inspired by the Middle Mountain Momma XXC race course that explores all the highlights of Douthat State Park plus some extra at almost 200 feet of climbing per mile (see the links below for some ideas of what we’ll be riding). Come join me Friday and let’s ride it together! In total, I expect to ride ~55 miles with roughly 9500′ of climbing.

***This is an advanced mountain biking trip. It is steep, rocky, and difficult riding. There can be areas without cell service if you need help. In addition, please consider that it will be cold and unpleasant if you get injured or need to bail on the ride. It also is particularly long mileage with plenty of climbing. Please only sign up if you are an advanced rider and prepared for the challenge***

The plan
5:00 am: arrive at the Shred Shack
5:15: depart for trailhead
7:00: arrive at trailhead
~ride bikes~
sometime Friday evening: back in Charlottesville
