For those of you who came here out of curiosity, BOSS  = Blow Off Some Steam. We ride every week after work, different days of the week, and some weekends, weather depending. All BOSS Rides are coed, no-drop rides.

Ride Description

This ride is considered intermediate to advanced due the somewhat technical nature of the trails, the vertical gain (~1500 ft.)  and mileage (10-15 miles) we'll put in.    You're probably aware that the West Magnolia trails are closed, but this trail is still open.   To access this trail, we've got a different starting point (see above).

This trail system is all singletrack. Be prepared for ~2 hours of riding with good climbs.   We'll have lunch at the Toilet Bowl (can you think of a more tempting name for a lunch spot?).

Please RSVP for this event so we have a good headcount for the number of riders!

Hitch a ride to the trailhead!  CARPOOL!!

Get with the program, and carpool! Let's meet at the Justice Center parking lot (southwest corner, near the creek trail) at 9:20, and leave no later than 9:30.    The Justice Center parking lot is at the SE corner of Canyon & 6th St.

Individuals who want to pre-plan carpools may add comments at the bottom of this page (click "add new comments").
