Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Fountainhead MTB Park
Here it is y’all, the trip you’ve all been waiting for: Mountain biking at Fountainhead Regional Park!!
This isn’t your run-of-the-mill MTBing trail. Fountainhead is a top notch man made course with the smoothest and flowy-ist ride your teeny tiny heart has ever rolled on. There are three distinct one ways loops designed for beginner, intermediate, and advanced riders all allowing for maximum level of shredding.
I am not making this a beginner trip because I plan on staying longer than most beginners would have the energy for, but if you think you have the cardio then you should definitely sign up!
-Meet at Echols at 8am Saturday (03.26.16) which puts us there around 10am
-Eat a snack or two
-Finish shredding (total of ~ 4 hours of shredding)
-Leave the park around 2pm, which puts us back in C’ville around 4pm

What you need:
-Bike + Helmet (the club has got you if you need it)
-Lots-of-water (at least 1L!)
-Pack to hold yo junk
I have a truck that can take 1 driver + 4 additional humans and 6 bikes.
Everyone will be waitlisted initially, but people with cars/cars that can take bikes get priority. We have a limited number of bikes so they are allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Club reimburses for gas with a noice 10% tip 😉 … up to $10
I’ll leave you with the famous words of one of America’s greatest riders:
