- Las Vegas Bike or Hike Meetup: Intermediate Mountain Bike
Sunday, July 01, 2012 7:00 a.m.
This ride will be for intermediate mountain bike riders. Leaving from Late Night parking lot we will go up Dino Hill and then connect with the Dead Horse loop. It is mostly gradual uphill for 1-2 miles, then moderately steep for 1 1/2 miles, then fairly flat for another 1 1/2 miles. So we will get a great sustained aerobic workout! The viewpoint at about 5,000 ft. is quite dramatic. We retrace our route on the way back so it is almost all downhill and a blast. The scenery is astounding and it is quiet and not many other riders. We will go at a moderate pace and will wait for those in the back. Please stay on the trails, yield to uphill riders, stay in our group, and move over to let others pass. Requirements: Bring extra tube, 2 liter (66 oz.) water, helmet, positive attitude, and don't be late and be ready to leave upon arrival (we will leave promptly.) Recommended: Small basic first aid kit, ID, health insurance cards, sunscreen, cell phone, phone #s of friends and relatives in case of emergency, let relatives know where you are going and when you will be back and give them your cell #, wear bike or gym shorts rather than pants or sweats, bring a windbreaker or long sleeve T-shirt in your backpack or fannypack and gloves as extra if needed in cold weather, leave valuables at home (break-ins possible while you are riding.)
