What Are Singletrack Socials

What are Singletrack Socials?

We call our Wednesday night group ride a “social” because that’s our intent. We want the ride to be casual. We want all levels of riders to feel welcome. We want you to have a good time. We have a few guidelines we follow to make sure this happens:

  1. We split up into ability groups.
  2. Someone from the club always sweeps.
  3. We stop. We chat. We catch our breath.
  4. We encourage each other.
  5. We always yield to others and use exceptional trail etiquette.
  6. We don’t “drop” anyone.
  7. We always socialize afterwards. (If we are at someone’s house, please bring something to share.)
  8. Rides are always weather dependent and trail condition dependent. If it’s not raining but it rained the day before and the trails are sloppy, we won’t ride.

Always check our Facebook page and our website for announcements if things seem questionable.

For March, when we are short on daylight, we meet at the Spring Canyon Park parking lot past the Dog Park at 5:15 p.m. so we can ride by 5:30 p.mWe will generally ride for an hour to an hour and a half. Ride time will be the same although some of the more advanced rides may run longer, light permitting.  From this starting point, we will ride Pineridge, Maxwell, Shoreline and Foothills trails depending on how ambitious you are.

For April, when we have a bit more light to ride, we meet at the Spring Canyon Park parking lot past the Dog Park at 5:30 p.m. so we can ride by 5:45 p.mWe will generally ride for an hour to an hour and a half. Ride time will be the same although some of the more advanced rides may run longer, light permitting.  From this starting point, we will ride Pineridge, Maxwell, Shoreling and Foothills trails depending on how ambitious you are.

May through August, we meet at at the Blue Sky Trailhead at 6:00 p.m. so we can ride by 6:15 p.m. (Parking $6.00 unless you have an annual Larimer County pass.) We will generally ride for an hour to an hour and a half.  Ride time will be the same although some of the more advanced rides may run longer towards the 2 hour range. From Blue Sky trailhead, we have access to Horsetooth Mountain Open Space, Lory State Park, Blue Sky and more.

As the light wanes in September, we move back to the Spring Canyon Park parking lot past the Dog Park at 5:30 p.m. so we can ride by 5:45 p.m.  We will generally ride for an hour to an hour and a half. Ride time will be the same although some of the more advanced rides may run longer, light permitting. From this starting point, we will ride Pineridge, Maxwell, Shoreline and Foothills trails depending on how ambitious you are.

A couple of things: You can’t ride with us without a helmet. Bring water. Bring
a tube in case you flat. If you are new to riding, let us know. We’ll help you out
as much as we can.

Please know, we want you, and everyone else, to enjoy yourselves and come back next week.
