It's a fantastic opportunity to learn your way around "back there" and explore the green heart of urban Des Moines.

Ride is dependent on trail conditions. We only ride dirt. No muddy/wet trails.  In the event trail conditions won't let us ride, we'd encourage you to join the road edition!

- Meet at the Clare and Miles Mills Rose Garden parking lot (behind the Art Center, 4500 Grand Ave) for a 6pm depart.
- Ride over and do a loop of Center Trails (J-11, Denman's, and other river trails pending conditions)

- Hillside and Rollercoaster may be ridden depending on the whim of the group
- Hang out afterwards for beers and whatevers.

- Dirt capable bike and helmet required.
- All skill levels are welcome.

- The riders will wait and re-group at the end of each trail segment
- Avg speed is ~7-10mph

- To meet our time/pace, we may opt to not ride a trail segment.

- Sweeper will make sure that no one is left behind

- Depending on the mood of the group, we may hit the trails clockwise or counterclockwise to mix things up.


We'll hit J-11, Denman's Woods, Squirrel's Nest, and Rhythm.  Will ride Hillside and Rollercoaster depending on the whim of the group. Sometimes clockwise, sometimes counter clockwise.
