Question

I'd like to join the Satruday 7:00 AM at Rowher Flat. I've ridden Rowher twice and really like it as a local spot.


Here's a few questions than I have not found in this gargantuan thread.
  • Is a meeting place inside Rowher Flat established?
  • How long will be ride be?
  • As a a beginning rider, will I be holding up the group?
  • Will anyone be upset with me if I skip the tripple black diamond trails?

If you do that they will get upset and never talk to you anymore...

your 1st post is on this thread, we feel honored.... come out and join us...


meet at staging area 1 @ 7am. make sure you have an adventure pass. no ramp needed, there is a loading and unloading dock at the far left corner of the parking lot.

we normally hangout by the entrance, near the restroom.

it's going to be hot tomorrow afternoo, so, this will be a short ride, done by 11.

no worry, this thread is known for accomodating beginners, including expert riders looking for a good group of riders.

don't even mention the black diamonds........you're scaring the hell out of me.....

seriously, we split into different skill levels if needed or depends what the group want. if some guys want basic riding lesson, i'm the expert on that...; we will give you some pointers, just let us know. we can also talk about bike equipment and riding gear.

tomorrow, the plan is work on our dirt skills and do a little ride. b.s., and have lunch. on nice days, we normally ride long distances, 50 - 500 miles, but not this time.

Define beginner! Are you a guy that is just learning how to stand on the pegs? Do most riders have to wait for you? Do you wonder what the bike would be like in 4 or 5th gear? Oh wait thats me.

You won't see me on the tripple black diamond. I am working on the single black diamond but I am slow on them and drop (loop) it once in awhile.

Saturday ride

I'm gonna ride in and put in a few trail miles. Riding is the best physical therapy. I won't be early so I'll look for you guys. Don't drink all the beer before 9 am
I don't think I've seen it mentioned here but you do not need the Adventure Pass at Rowher if you ride in. Unlike ranger Todd our local rangers only count parked 4 wheel vehicles
