    Yes, you'll be fine, nothing a hardtail can't handle.

    If it helps video on bottom of page in link below gives you some idea. Plus, there will be some bikes to try out so you can do a lap on your bike and then come demo a Tallboy, Anthem x 29, or Superfly 100

    Sounds good, one of our employees, Will Black, will be leading a ride at 10am for those looking to learn/pick up some skills/tips. Will spent years as a pro mtb'er and loves to share his knowledge.

    I'll be there at 8am sharp. I am a novice mx rider. But this mountain bike stuff is a lot different since I have to pedal!

    It's been AGES since I've ridden Flat Creek. I'm glad it's back, and will try to make it.

    This sounds like a good time, I'm going to try and make it out there as well... I've been out here for the last 2 Muddy Buddy events but never just biked the trails.

    Muddy Buddy trails and the XC trails aren't the same. Muddy buddy events have to cater to a more broad group and they cut in new sections for it, they did use pieces of old trail to splice together but all-in--all you will have fun. Some video here. Much more singletrack and some video here of race course.

    Curious bringing a friend that has no bike. Could he ride a demo bike on the group ride if we get there early?

    Can't make it this weekend. The Mellow Johnny's Spring Classic course was awesome. So stoked that they are opening it for riding. Please let us know when the next ride day is.

    Thanks for the offers of help and positive words

    Weather is looking pretty dodgy at the moment so trying to be proactive here and let you know that you need to check our twitter early Saturday before heading out. We'll post no later than 7am, but if it rains all night as predicted we'll have to re-schedule. Leaf Dove our trail super star worked hard on the trails and while many of us have the skills and equipment to ride in the wet, we have to be respectful of property owners, safety of less seasoned riders etc.

    The bright news is that our plan is to have more of these events in the future so we'll keep plodding forward.
