Big Lake to Lake Cavanaugh-JUNE 3- 12-14 MPH STEADY- 38 MILES

This ride begins at the large unpaved parking lot across the street from the Big Lake Grocery.

Please be at the start and ready to ride by 10:00 am when we'll have our pre-ride briefing. if you miss this briefing, you will not be able to ride with the group.

There are no restrooms at the start. However, we will be passing a public boat launch with a restroom 2 miles from the start.

There are no public water sources once we leave Big Lake. So, have plenty of hydration on your bike or bring a water purifier/filtration device to use at the creeks we pass.

This a ride up to and around a beautiful alpine mountain lake. You can expect a good workout for your hill-climbing skills and condition, as you can see from the RWGPS profile. You need to be in shape for this ride or have an e-bike. The grades are generally not steep, just long.

Why you could/should do these rides:

You have been doing some training and can handle 38 miles and 2300 feet of climbing.
You are seeking a scenic, low-traffic ride out in the country.
You think that you are either 1) in pretty good hill shape and would like to test that, or 2) have an e-bike.
Maybe you are planning on doing STP, RSVP, RAW, or other multi-day rides. This is great prep for those.
Riders may sometimes either fall behind or shoot ahead on hills. Nevertheless, riders will be expected to re-group after their "break away" or "fall behind."
You must pre-register no later than 8 am on the morning of the ride, by clicking the "Register Now" button. Please un-register if you decide not to attend in order to free space for another rider.

Bring a spare tube and tools to fix a flat, just in case. Please have full fenders if the roads are wet, or you may be asked to ride at the rear of the group.
