    MTB Tour

    Has anyone done the MTB Tour? (I did part of it last year, by following the wrong signs during my race, but that is besides the point! ) Did you have a good time? And is there anything I should know about it ?

    Thanks a bunch & Ride Safe,

    Brandy,

    Yes, definitely a good time and you'll find that there are still some pretty fast and fit riders in the group but the commonality is the free spirit of riding a "fun" ride and not a competitive get out of my way I'm faster than you kind of ride. Some people like that, more power to 'em.

    But for some good fun, do the fun ride:

    Here's a little video of my MTB Tour fun ride a few years back at the Sea Otter

    How's the 20 mile loop? Says 6800+ feet of elevation, but that seems almost impossible on a trail that only undulates between 200 and 800 feet of elevation. I'm still getting back into shape, so I want to know if it's got a lot of serious climbing, or is it more gradual.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Is there any technical downhill?

    Not a very technical ride...just sweet fast flowy singletrack on mostly packed sandy soil with the occasional ruts to avoid.
