Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Walnut Creek Park
Spring has sprung so it’s about time to start shredding that dirt! What better way to spend a Friday afternoon than joyriding at Walnut Creek Park? That’s right, the answer is no way! With almost 15 miles of technical singletrack to play on, there will be plenty of routes and variety to keep it interesting.
The club has 8 beastly hardtail bikes of various sizes which can be checked out along with helmets. Definitely wear athletic clothing and shoes and avoid long pants (it’ll be about 65 degrees so yeah). Also bring water or sports drink (20oz gatorades fit the club’s holders), a snack for an energy boost, and sunglasses are always a good idea for both the sun and your eye protection since blasting downhill with a pine cone stuck in your eyeball is surprisingly not as fun as it sounds.
Additionally, this trip is intended for those who have some mountain biking experience as we will be hitting some of the more challenging terrain. Therefore, it is NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BEGINNERS. That said, we won’t do anything anyone is super uncomfortable with.
As is the norm for trips like this, this trip will be wait-list only until more drivers sign up.
