MBC-UMRA Tuesday Ride 6/25/2024 - Report w/Map

Post ride report:

7 riders met at Silver Park to enjoy this warm morning ride. Starting in Silver Park we rode south on the Bitterroot Trail. We maintained a slow and easy pace keeping the group fairly close as we crossed the several in town streets and acknowledging the several courteous drivers who allowed us all to cross at the intersections. After crossing Hwy 93 at Blue Mt. Rd the leader encouraged all riders to set their own pace and comfort level to the Willow Tree and return to the Blue Mt. crossing. Some riders took advantage of this suggestion and pushed to a higher speed and attack on the uphill climbs while others continued at their own comfortable pace.

  • Duration: 1 hours, 30 minutes
