E-Z Group

This ride is perfect for 1st time FAST group riders and for those that are new to the sport of mountain biking. Expect frequent stops while your ride leader strives to ensure everyone is comfortable with the terrain and pace.

***New Mountain Bikers, please make sure to introduce yourself to the Ride Leader & Sweeper***

Every rider within each group is responsible for knowing where the rider behind them is and communicating forward if there are issues during the ride. The slowest rider is the most significant rider of any group.
COMMUNICATION is key! If, for any reason, there is an issue and riders need to split up or break off from the group, this must be communicated verbally to another group member and then later communicated to the entire group at one of the stops.

Two major rules:
Never leave/split off from a group without telling someone.
Know where the rider is behind you.
