    Cline Butte Laps?

    I think it should be great up there so anyone wanna put some laps in on the butte with big bikes. Shuttle preferably, but if no go's on that I'll ride up... Slowly.

    Thinking Sunday let me know if anyone's interested.

    Cheers,

    Ben

    Saw your route on Strava. What direction did you ride? Was it clockwise? Up the West side and down the East? I have never gone up Cline Butte. Thanks in advance!

    I rode up the vehicle road, then down the single track. Check the satellite view on strava it gets pretty detailed there. Warning, the downhill is STEEP. I think Strava called it a 22% grade AVERAGE lol. 15-20min up, 2 min down haha!

    We also took a spin across the street to Maston but too muddy.

    That was steep!!! Unfortunately, I flatted my tubeless on the way down. Had to walk to a flatter section to fix. Yuck!!! Will try again. Nice trail!!!
