    Paramount Group Ride

    Instead of a group ride this thursday, May 9th, we encourage everyone to show up at the Spenard Rec center at 6:00 pm to support the Kincaid North Singletrack Project. For more information, see: http://www.muni.org/Departments/parks/Pages/BoardsCommissions.aspx

    We will resume our shoulder-season rides next Thursday, May 16, departing from the store at 7 pm.

    Shop Ride Thursday, May 16. We'll be giving the trails a little more time to dry out, so join us for a neighborhood ride through southwest anchorage. We'll be leaving from the store at 7 pm.

    In addition to our group mountain bike ride thursday night we will have two demo bikes available for the ride. One is a size small Anthem X advanced carbon and the other is a size medium Anthem X. Both are 4 inch travel 29er full suspensions. They are still fairly shiny and new and need some love. Contact us ahead of time if you are interested in riding one so we can set it up for you. See you all at the trails.

    Upper Hillside trails in great shape. Maybe 2 very short bogs on the northern queen bee I walked around, but otherwise great and tacky.

    Paramount Shop Ride Thursday, June 13. We'll meet at the Hillside Parking lot, outside of the gate to Hilltop Ski Area (Abbott Road). We will start the ride at 7 pm. From all reports, the mosquitos are pretty bad so be prepared. See you there! Kevin reports the trails are in great shape. Arctic Bike Club short track is also happening at Hilltop.

    You'll also encounter 200+ kids with the mighty bikes group. There's room for everyone. Just a heads up!

    We will be riding again this week at Kincaid starting from the raspberry lot at 7pm. As mentioned last week we have two demo bikes available. One is a small carbon fully and the other is a size medium aluminum fully. Both are a blast to ride. Call ahead if you would like to reserve one! Bring your own pedals for the demo bike. Also we have some fancy carbon 29er giant wheels available for trying out. Call store for details on the wheels. See you at the trail-head.

    Thursday June 27. Kincaid Park once again, we'll try some other trails. Meet at Raspberry Rd parking lot in order to head out by 7 pm.

    Then next week, July 4th, we'll be heading down to Resurrection Pass for an all day ride across. We plan to meet at the shop at 8 am to carpool. We'll post updates during the week as needed.

    Thursday, July 4. We are still planning on Resurrection Pass. Meet at the shop at 8 am and we'll carpool if possible. Depending on the size of the group, we'll consider splitting into two groups - one leaving from Hope, the other from Cooper Landing and swap keys when we meet. Call Wednesday if you have any questions.

    Where'd you guys ride? I saw Kevin's truck when I was almost there, but myself and another headed up the hillside trails and didn't see anyone from paramount. There were a whole lot of kids up there, but we managed to miss them all. Were you on the lower trails?

    Went down multiuse to Baseball - Speedway - Moosemeadow to Brown Bear, then up the ski trails to the Hive. Love those rooty trails (in the winter).

    No shop ride due to wet mushy trails. Check back next week for a possible trail ride or even a road ride.

    No shop ride this week. Check back next week. If the wet weather doesn't break we will probably do some pavement miles.
